About me

I am an assistant professor in the School of Economics at Renmin University of China. 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 Dr. Neil Cummins and Prof. Debin Ma.

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