Dr. Tsui describes her current research projects:
The second project is about girls in mathematics and science. In my previous research, I have found that among the children of the one-child generation in Chinese cities, there is no gender difference in mathematical performance among 5th and 8th graders. For this project, I want to see if the only girls continue to perform equally well as their male counterparts at college entrance examinations."
