Yun Zhou is a social demographer and family sociologist. With a theory-driven mixed-methods approach, her research examines social inequality and state-market-family relations through the lens of gender, marriage, and reproduction.

Zhou's primary interests include gender, fertility, union formation, politics of reproduction, population policy, and innovative methods. Her work combines statistical analysis of survey data, original in-depth interviews, and agent-based computational modeling. Intersecting the studies of population and politics, Zhou's current project investigates the demographic, political, and gendered consequences of China's recent ending of the one-child policy.
