Welcome to my website!
I am an Assistant Professor at the National School of Development, Peking University.
My research agenda spans a range of development economics topics, including health, disaster, anti-poverty programs, and political economy. Methodologically, much of my work involves conducting randomized control trials in field settings and generating original data. I am currently running field experiments that help households cope with the HIV/AIDS pandemic and natural disasters. My research locations include China and Mozambique.
