I am a Ph.D. candidate in Applied Economics at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities. My research interest focuses on the application of quantitative economic modeling in the study of wealth inequality and household economics under a dynamic stochastic, general-equilibrium, heterogeneous-agents framework. The goal of my dissertation aims to evaluate the life-cycle effect of a tax shift from capital income taxation to wealth taxation on household asset allocation.

I am familiar with data science (machine learning), econometric/statistical analysis, scientific programming and parallel computing on high performance computers. I utilize these skills on my dissertation project to parallelize and visualize the numerical solution of my quantitative model.

I will be available for interviews on the ASSA 2018 Annual Meeting in Philadelphia. You can find my CV on the current web page, and my Job Market Paper (work in progress) here .
