PhD Job Market Candidate

My fields of interest are Applied Econometrics, Financial Economics, and Macroeconomics. My job market paper explores the effect of the stock market collapse during the 2007-2008 financial crisis on households’ consumption decision.

PhD Job Market Candidate

My research interests are in labour economics, economic history, and inequality. My job market paper studies the impact of public school introduction and how education policy can improve intergenerational mobility.

PhD Job Market Candidate

My research interests are in Macroeconomics and Labour Economics. My job market paper explores how increased labour market flexibility, partly due to rapid de-unionization in the mid-1980s, led productivity to become more countercyclical in the U.S. In a different paper, I examine the impact of intra-family linkages on the evolution of consumption and income inequality across generations.

PhD Job Market Candidate

My primary research interests lie in the field of Microeconomic Theory, with a specific focus on mechanism design problems with liars and lie-detection.

My job market paper studies how lie-detecting technology can be applied to deter lying and elicit information from potential liars. I also characterize the optimal lie-detecting design.

PhD Job Market Candidate

My research interest lies in macroeconomics, particularly the interaction between financial market and the macroeconomy.

My job market paper studies the long-term impact of mortgage expansion on the U.S. labor market. Empirically, it discusses how mortgage market fluctuations affect local employment, wage and firm dynamics. I’m also interested in the impact of financial friction on Chinese private firm performance.
