My research interests are primarily in Applied Microeconomics, Labor Economics, Political Economy, and Behavioral Economics. I apply perspectives and methodologies from these fields to study how policies affect inequality of different sexual/gender groups, racial/ethnic groups, and groups with divergent family background in labor market outcomes, health, and marital outcomes. I also investigate how individuals respond in their attitudes, behaviors, and well-being to big changes in both society and their personal life. In my studies, I exploit both large administrative microdata and survey data from various countries including the United States, Europe, and China.

I am willing to supervise Ph.D. students who are interested in Applied Microeconomics, Labor Economics, Political Economy, or Behavioral Economics.
