PhD Candidate in Agricultural Economics

Texas A&M University


I am a PhD Candidate at the Department of Agricultural Economics, Texas A&M University, under the supervision of Dr. Bruce McCarl.

My research mainly focuses on environmental economics, applied econometrics, and casual inference. In particular, I address the impacts of environmental problems, such as climate change and air pollution, on our economy, and how we deal with them.

Currently, I am working on a project which examines the effects of ozone exposure (that is “bad” ozone on the surface, not the “good” ozone in the space) on crop yields in both the United States and China. The latter one is funded by the Fifth Round of IPCC Scholarship Programme and the Cuomo Foundation, please find more information from here.
