Reimagining Care/Work Policies

Manlin (Monica) Cai is a doctoral student in the Department of Sociology at the University of British Columbia. Her research interests center around family, gender, and immigration in China and Canada. She is particularly interested in how gender intersects with family dynamics under the broader social, cultural, and institutional contexts. She works with Prof. Sylvia Fuller and Prof. Yue Qian to examine how the COVID-19 pandemic affects the Canadian families in the labor market and how these effects may inform family policies.
