I am an assistant professor at Norwegian School of Economics (NHH) in Bergen, Norway. I received my PhD in Economics degree from the University of Wyoming. 

I have been moving around a lot. I grew up in Baoding, the capital of pollution in China. After finishing college in my hometown, I moved to New York City to study financial engineering. Then I decided to become an environmental economist and solve some real-world problems, as I grew up witnessing literally all kinds of environmental problems in my hometown. After I graduated I started working as an assistant professor in Bergen, Norway. I'm grateful for my experience living in all these culturally unique places.

I'm interested in examining the link between human behavior and the effectiveness of environmental and natural resource policies. My current work focuses on Norwegian catch-share management policies. Specifically, I'd like to understand how individuals affect the efficiency of environmental and natural resource policies.
