Lecturer Economics


Personal Statement

I joined the ULMS after I received my Ph.D. from the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona, Spain in 2019. My research interests are political economy, development economics and applied microeconomics with a particular focus on social inequality and mobility. I currently work on family planning policy and its consequences on gender inequality. I also write on topics about intergenerational mobility. In particular, I theoretically and empirically identify the historical and institutional causes that explain the cross-regional differences in mobility rates within a country. Besides, I am also interested in digital economics and economic history. I hold an M.S. degree from Barcelona Graduate School of Economics and a B.A. degree from City University of Hong Kong.
