About

BurakHo_picture

I am an assistant professor of sociology and social policy at Lingnan University, a liberal arts university in Hong Kong. My interests include income and gender inequality, distributive justice, executive compensation, and attitudes. My current work, funded by an Early Career Scheme (ECS) award from the Research Grants Council of Hong Kong, examines attitudes toward executive pay in the U.S., Hong Kong, and mainland China. I am also affiliated with the Centre for Social Policy and Social Change at Lingnan.

I regularly teach Introduction to Sociology, Sociological Research Methods, Work and Occupations, and Public Opinion and Opinion Survey.

Before coming to Lingnan, I earned my PhD in sociology from Stanford University and my BA in sociology and economics from Cornell University.
