I am a postdoctoral research/teaching fellow at the Vancouver School of Economics at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. My main research area is macroeconomics and firm dynamics. In particular, I work on firm and industry cross-sectional heterogeneity and their implications to the macroeconomy. I am originally from Changzhou, China, and I obtained my Ph.D. from Stern School of Business, New York University, New York, USA. Outside of economics: I have played piano since I was four; I obtained a bartending license in New York City; I have been a fan of Liverpool Football Club for more than 18 years.
