HKU Business School. I received my BA from Harvard University in 2012 and my PhD from MIT in 2022.
My research covers topics including labor service outsourcing, theory of the firm, money and barter, housing. Here is my CV. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org or DM me on Twitter.
If you’re a research-track student at HKU interested in economics, I’m occasionally looking for RAs. Feel free to email me!
