Lei Jin Ph.D.

Cohort 12 — Harvard Alumni List
Associate Professor, Department of Sociology
Chinese University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong, China

Dr. Jin received both her PhD in Sociology and Master of Science in Statistics from the University of Chicago. Her overarching research interest lies in the interplay of health, medicine and social systems. She has published in journals such as Demography, Social Science & Medicine, Social Science Research and Health Affairs, among others. Jin's work falls into two areas: the social determinants of health and the social organisation of health care. In the first area, she has examined how people's social relationships are linked to their health-related outcomes. She has published papers assessing how marital status affects the utilisation of health care and how local and trans-local social ties influence rural-to-urban migrants'mental health by shaping their social comparisons. She is also interested in delineating how structural inequality affects individual health through psychosocial pathways. In her current projects, she is investigating how relative social status, status inconsistency and social mobility influence health, the consequences of migration for psychological well-being and the health effects of contextual social inequality in China. In the area of social organization of health care, she has studied patient-doctor interaction in the US and the changing patterns in the use of Chinese medicine in China. Her on-going project focuses on professional autonomy among physicians in China's public hospital reforms.
