research overview

  • My research interests are development economics and applied microeconomics with a focus on health, education and environment. Guided by economic theory, my work lies in the use of quasi-experimental approaches to add to understanding core questions in the economics literature and providing policy lessons. Among my completed research, I explore two reforms during China’s great transition from Mao’s era to a market-oriented economy to empirically examine three issues: 1) parental education and child health; 2) prenatal environment and long-term human capital accumulation; 3) economic incentives and the sex ratio imbalance. I am working on several work-in-progress research. One project examines the role of the One Child Policy implementation in determining local officials' career path. Another project studies air pollution and health in China.
