Wei Zhuang


Personal profile


Wei Zhuang is doing her PhD in Social Statistics under the supervision of Prof Mark Elliot with co-supervisor Prof Colette Fagan. Wei is interested in the issues of gender and family. Specifically, she is now exploring the impacts of parenthood on the division of household labour by using both "stylised" questionnaire data and diary-based time-use data. Although her training had been design&technology-related in the last few years, she did her second master's programme in Social Research Methods and Statistics (SRMS) in the Social Statistics Department of the University of Manchester from 2021 to 2022 to lay the foundation for her PhD studies. The SRMS programme provides her with many advanced quantitative research methods, which are very important to her PhD research.
