Yue Zhang works as a quantitative research assistant for the Religious Workforce Project under the direction of Dr. Lovett Weems and Dr. Amy Kubichek. Utilizing large denominational datasets provided by the RWP’s research partners, Yue is responsible for data cleaning, statistical analyses, and data visualization. As a quantitative sociologist, she contributes to the RWP with experience in developing statistical models for testing complex social science studies.

Meanwhile, Yue is a doctoral candidate in the Department of Sociology at the University of Georgia. Yue’s research investigates how social processes influence health and aging over the life-course. More specifically, she is interested in the mechanisms through which social events and relationships produce inequality and influence the speed of aging.  Yue’s work with her research team has been published in multiple outlets, including Journal of Racial and Ethnic Health Disparities and Journal of Health and Social Behavior.
