My research mainly focused on education, and how social, financial and cultural capitals are influencing the academic attainment. I have two foci in current research - to understand the cultural awareness of teachers and students in EFL classroom and to explore the factors influencing the differences. The other areas I am interested in are Environmental Sociology and Public Health.
