About Me

I am an applied microeconomist, with a particular interest in public, financial, and political economics. I also do applied theory research using simulation methods. I got my PhD degree in June, 2019 from the University of California, Santa Cruz. I will join Zhejiang University as an Assistant Professor soon.
