Zihan Yu

I am Zihan Yu, an MSc student in Comparative Social Policy at the Department of Social Policy and Intervention (DSPI) and a member of Jesus College. Prior to commencing my master’s degree, I earned my bachelor’s degree in Chinese Language and Literature from Renmin University of China and studied at University of California, Davis through a fully funded undergraduate exchange program. I worked for Steinberg Institute as a communications intern and was an immigration researcher for National Park Service, U.S.A, which provoked my interest in public policy studies.

My primary research interest focuses on poverty alleviation for the elderly in developing countries, and I am particularly interested in the relationship between old age, gender, and poverty and the way in which the government can develop a comprehensive welfare system that targets at the multifaceted needs of the elderly.
