Chiu Tuen Yi's Ph.D. thesis is a multi-sited ethnographic research that examines the spousal dynamics, transborder mobility, and family functioning of cross-border families formed by Hong Kong men and mainland Chinese women. It was recently awarded the Young Scholars Thesis Award by the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Her new research extends the inquiry to cover a comparative analysis of gender dynamics in cross-border marriages by studying the gender-reversal scenario that involves marriages between a Hong Kong woman and a mainland Chinese man against the more typical scenario involving a Hong Kong man and mainland Chinese woman.
