Welcome to my homepage

I studied as a PhD student at the Department of Economics of the University of Warwick from 2012 to 2018 under the supervision of Professor Sascha O. Becker, Dr. Mingli Chen, and Professor Mike Pitt. I have also worked as a part-time Research Officer at the University of Surrey (2017-18) and a Research Fellow at the University of Southampton (2018).

I am on the job market for 2017/2018. From September 2018, I will be joining the Center for Econometrics and Microdata Practice (CEMP) at the Institute for Economics and Social Research (IESR) of the Jinan University (Google map link).

My main research interests are in econometrics, applied econometrics, and economics of education. I am particularly interested in 1) estimating treatment effects using both frequentist and Bayesian methods; 2) Bayesian approach to missing data problem; and 3) higher education and education in developing countries.
