I am a Ph.D candidate in Economics with strong economic theory background and statistical/mathematical modeling skills. My research interests Industrial Organization, Innovation, and Entrepreneurial Finance.
My research focuses on understanding how firms make research and development decisions and the effects of public policies on innovation. My research develops dynamic general equilibrium models to study how public policies influence the aggregate growth rate of the economy and the implications of the market for ideas on industrial dynamics, including firms' entry, exit, and expansion speed. I also use a dynamic partial equilibrium model to study entrepreneur finance when adverse selection cause friction on the financial market.
