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 research interests include computational economics, climate change economics, integrated modeling, environmental and resource economics, and decision making under uncertainty. My current research focuses on dynamic stochastic integration of climate and economics, as well as land use economics. I have published peer-reviewed papers in a variety of academic journals including Journal of Political Economy, Journal of the European Economic Association, Quantitative Economics, Nature Climate Change, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, and Operations Research. I am a co-investigator on several research projects funded by the National Science Foundation and USDA-NIFA.

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