Hello! This is Dr. Yongyang Cai, an Associate Professor at Department of Agricultural, Environmental and Development Economics, The Ohio State University. Prior to joining OSU, I was a Senior Research Scientist at the Becker Friedman Institute, University of Chicago, and a Visiting Fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University.

My main research interests include computational economics, climate change economics, integrated assessment models, financial mathematics, environmental and resource economics, decision making under uncertainty, dynamic stochastic general equilibrium, and dynamic stochastic game. My current research focuses on dynamic stochastic integration of climate and economics, as well as land use economics. I have written or co-written 15 peer-reviewed papersĀ  published in academic journals including Nature Climate Change, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Operations Research, Computers & Operations Research, Journal of the European Economic Association, and Quantitative Economics.

I received an MS in Financial Mathematics in 2008 and a PhD in Computational and Mathematical Engineering in 2010, both from Stanford University.
