About me

I am a fourth-year Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Economic History at the London School of Economics. My research interests lie in economic history, 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 am supervised by Dr. Neil Cummins and Prof. Debin Ma.

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