About me

I am a doctoral candidate in Agricultural, Regional, and Environmental Economics at Pennsylvania State University. I expect to graduate in 2020.

Here is a link to my CV.

I received Bachelor's degree in Economics from 北京大学 Peking University, worked as an assistant researcher in Center for Human and Economic Development Studies, received Master's degree in Agricultural and Resource Economics from The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and Master's degree in Economics from North Carolina State University.

My research addresses issues and challenges in managing environmental externalities and natural resources, such as climate change, renewable energy, sustainable agriculture and water pollution. I am also interested in using computer programming tools for econometric analysis. For an overview of my publications please click here.
