I hold a Ph.D. in Real Estate Economics from Penn State’s Smeal College of Business. In Summer 2022, I joined Cornell’s SC Johnson School of Business as a Visiting Assistant Professor.
My research interests are urban and public economics with application to housing policies. I use applied microeconomics methods to understand households’ housing consumption responses to government policies. In my research papers, I strive at producing policy-relevant results to improve housing policies. As an example, in my dissertation, I study the effects of federal fiscal housing subsidies on residents’ demand for local public goods, residents’ voting behaviors at local referendums, or local governments’ access to debt financing.
