Kailing gained her doctorate at Centre for Women’s Studies, University of York, UK. She was recently awarded the 2017 Early Career Researcher Prize by the British Association for Chinese Studies for her article ‘Premarital abortion, what is the harm? The Responsibilisation of women’s pregnancy among China’s ‘privileged’ daughters’. She adopts a feminist approach to understanding how gender affects the lives of China’s urban privileged only-daughters. Kailing’s broader research interests include social justice, identity politics, and race and nationalism in contemporary China. She has recently written a piece "A Fulfilled Life? Young Mothers Under the Two-Child Policy'' on WAGIC. Her short piece “‘Her China Dream’: The Aspiration of China’s Privileged Daughters” could be found on Discover Society. She was invited to speak about Chinese women and the two-child policy at the Southbank Centre, London and WOW Women of the World Festival 2018.
