My research focuses on the area of empirical corporate finance. Specifically, I am interested in topics related to Financial Intermediation, Labor and Finance, and firms' supply-chain relationships. My research has been published in leading academic journals such as the Journal of Financial Economics, Review of Financial Studies, Review of Finance, the Journal of Accounting and Economics, The Accounting Review.  

I hold a Ph.D. degree in Finance from Cornell University, and graduated from Peking University with a bachelor’s degree in Economics and Mathematics.
