Neil Gong received his PhD from UCLA Sociology in 2019. His research uses diverse empirical cases to study power and social control in modernity, with a particular focus on understanding American liberalism. His dissertation compared public safety net and elite private psychiatric services in Los Angeles, and he previously researched the maintenance of social order in a “no-rules” libertarian fight club. In his spare time he likes to eat delicious things, ride bikes, and play guitar.
