About me

I am an assistant professor in the School of Economics at Renmin University of China. I received my Ph.D. in Economic History from the Department of Economic History at the London School of Economics and Political Science in 2021. My research interests lie in Chinese economic history, historical demography, social mobility, and long-term inequality.

My Ph.D. thesis focuses on the fertility decisions of Chinese families and the socio-economic factors that affected historical fertility, utilizing genealogical data from Chinese lineages spanning the fifteenth to the twentieth century. I was supervised by Prof. Neil Cummins and Prof. Debin Ma.

My future research will explore living conditions and demographic changes, gender inequality, social mobility, and human capital formation.

I am currently a visiting assistant professor (Aug 2024 - Jan 2025) at the Hong Kong Institute for the Humanities and Social Sciences, The University of Hong Kong.
