Haishi "Harry" Li

Assistant Professor in Economics, HKU Business School, the University of Hong Kong

I focus my research on analyzing, both theoretically and empirically, how economic shocks and natural disasters propagate in the international economy to affect well-being and carry policy implications. I develop complex quantitative international trade and macroeconomic models, and take advantage of different empirical settings with exogeneous variations.

Research interests: International trade, international macroeconomics, regional economics
