Welcome to my academic website. 

Research Interest
My research fields are Empirical Finance, Asset Pricing and Applied Econometrics.
My current research has special emphasis on asset pricing and is around two themes: 
A. understanding the long-run risks on consumption and leisure and their pricing performances on cross-sectional returns 
as well as on comparing models using measures misspecification (see paper 1,2); 
B. investigating conditional asset pricing model (see paper 3).
I am also interested in behavioral finance and household finance.
