Applied Microeconometrics, Household Finance, Housing Market, Labor Economics, Corporate Governance
My research mainly focuses on the application of micro-econometrics to household finance, housing market, labor economics, and corporate governance. I am particularly interested in the decision-making process of the economic agents such as household portfolio choice and housing tenure choice, education choice and corporate governance decisions. The common methodologies in those studies are application of structural estimation and quantitative implication via simulation exercises. This summarizes my research pursuit: better comprehension of decision making at a micro-level and welfare analysis based on quantitative evaluations. My goal is to contribute to various fields of economic research and related policy discussions such as loan-to-value regulation on mortgages by providing solid empirical evidence and robust counter-factual analysis.
