Fan Liu
Ph.D. candidate at the University of Texas at Austin


    Born in Beijing, China, I received my bachelor's degree in Economics and double degree in Statistics from Peking University in 2011. 

    I am currently a Economics Ph.D. candidate at UT Austin. My research interests include market structure, pricing and antitrust policies. My first job market paper provides a theoretical approach to the equilibrium effects of vertical contracts that reference rivals. The second job market of mine studies the welfare impacts of firm's offering switching discounts to consumers who purchased from its competitors.

    I have extensive experience working as teaching assistant to upper-division undergraduate IO courses during the past five years. A full description of my professional activities can be found in my CV. Other than Economics, my interests are writing and painting.
