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 inequality over the long run.
My Ph.D. thesis focuses on the fertility decisions of Chinese families and socio-economic factors that affected historical fertility, by exploiting genealogical data of Chinese lineages from the fifteenth century to the twentieth century. I was supervised by Prof. Neil Cummins and Prof. Debin Ma.
My future research would explore living conditions and demographic changes, gender inequality, social mobility, and human capital formation.
