I am a Ph.D. candidate in Applied Economics at the University of Minnesota. My current research interest focuses on the application of quantitative economic modeling on the studies of wealth inequality and capital accumulation, in the dynamic stochastic general-equilibrium framework. The goal of my dissertation aims at evaluating the impact of government taxation policies (for example, a tax switch from capital income tax to wealth tax) on wealth distribution, firm dynamics and household saving behaviors. I am familiar with econometric analysis, scientific programming and parallel computing on high performance computers, and utilizing these skills to conduct counterfactual policy experiments with the models proposed in my dissertation.
