I am an assistant professor in public administration at the Department of Politics and Public Administration at the University of Hong Kong. I look at how representation and diversity in the public and nonprofit workforce can be constructed to better serve the public. My research interests encompass public and nonprofit management, social equity, human resource management, environment policy, institutional theory, and computational methods. My works have been published at Public Administration Review, Public Administration, Administration & Society, Public Integrity, Administrative Theory & Praxis, and others. I received my PhD in Public Administration in the School of Public Affairs and Administration at Rutgers University–Newark. My dissertation project uses four essays with multiple methods to explore how representation and diversity in the public workforce can be used to contribute to the public service. In specific, I identified the contextual factors shaping the impacts of diversity and representation in pulic workforce on public organizational performance, examined the causal relationship between executive leader's political ideology on bureaucratic representation, and tested the impact of labor shortage in public workforce on the symbolic benefit from bureaucratic representation to citizen coproduction in public service. My ongoing works include comparing policy effects between political and bureaucratic representation, sectoral difference in impacts of workforce diversity on public policy, and environmental nonprofits.
