Shixin Huang received her Ph.D. in International Studies and Disability Studies from the University of Washington, Seattle in the United States. She also holds a master’s degree in Social Work with Distinction from the University of Hong Kong and a Master’s degree in Political Sociology from the London School of Economics. Shixin’s research broadly revolves around two themes. One strand of her research examines how institutional, social, and politico-economic factors at the transnational and domestic levels impact social policies, family life, and personal experiences of disability in contemporary China. The other strand of her work focuses on aged care workforce support and development in the context of Hong Kong.
Shixin’s research is informed by her nine years of research and practice experiences with people with disabilities and their family caregivers in China. Before joining the academia, she worked professionally as a project manager of a European Union-funded project in an NGO that promotes community empowerment and policy advocacy on disability justice in China. She proudly roots her research agenda in community experiences and develops collaborative research initiatives that advance community-driven and evidence-based policy change.
