Ms Wanying Ling
  • Wanying Ling (凌宛莹) is a full-time PhD student in the Department of Sociology at the University of Hong Kong.

    Her research interests intersect at the nexus of work and health, aging and the life course and gender inequality, employing formal demography and experiments tools. This focus has led me to explore several key areas: how work characteristics (such as quantity and quality) can either mitigate or exacerbate health inequalities among populations; the levels and trends in gender gaps in working life expectancy across various institutional settings; the impact of early work experiences on health later in life; and finally, the effect of caring needs on the working lives and well-being of intra-household members.
