I am working on a project regarding how household financial planning can be improved using modern economics theory and computing capacity. I am also working on projects on how the movements of urban land price depend on city characteristics, and how the pandemic might change urban land prices.

I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in 2009 with a Ph.D. in economics. I earned my bachelor's degree in Economics from Fudan University. Before joining University of Alberta, I was an assistant professor in Guanghua School of Management of Peking University.


My research focuses on household finance and real estate. I have also carried out some studies on human capital accumulation, labor supply and home production. The main approach is quantitative macro, emphasizing that a dynamic macro model should be able to deliver key statistics found in the data, especially in micro data from sources such as PSID, SCF and CEX.
