Analysis Group

I am an Associate at Analysis Group.

Before joining AG, I was a Postdoctoral Researcher in Dr. Li-San Wang's lab at the Penn Neurodegeneration Genomics Center (PNGC) at the Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania. I received my PhD in Economics at Lehigh University in 2020 under the supervision of Dr. Shin-Yi Chou. Here is the link to my curriculum vitae.

My research focuses on utilizing applied econometric methods and large-scale data to address policy-relevant issues in health, labor, and education economics. I also work on applying big genetic data and concepts of genetics to economic research. My research falls into three directions:

  1. Causal inference in the health effects of public policies and non-genetic determinants of health

  2. Early childhood environments and long-term outcomes

  3. Genetic risk modeling and its applications in economic research
