Professor CHIU Tuen Yi, Jenny is a sociologist specializing in migration, gender, marriage, family, and ageing. She obtained her Ph.D. from the Department of Sociology, The Chinese University of Hong Kong. She has joined Lingnan University since August 2019. Prior to that, she was Research Assistant Professor at The University of Hong Kong (2019) and Postdoctoral Fellow at the Asia Research Institute (ARI) at National University of Singapore (NUS; 2017-2018). From 2014-2015, she was a Visiting Fellow at Harvard-Yenching Institute, Harvard University.

Her current research projects include 1) Cross-Border Marriage Migration, Mixed-status Family and Citizenship, and 2) Transnational ageing and Chinese Grandparenting Migrants in Singapore and Australia. Her next projects will focus on transborder mobilities of older adults, grandparenting, and intergenerational relations. She is also interested in violence in intimate and family relationships. She has published articles in Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies, Population, Space and Place, Gender, Place and Culture, Violence Against Women and Current Sociology. Methodologically, she is interested in exploring the integration of qualitative and visual methods.
