Hi, I am Zibin Huang, a newly-graduate Ph.D. from the Department of Economics, University of Rochester. I am an applied microeconomist specialized in Labor and Urban Economics. My research interests include migration, inequality, education, e-commerce, and job offshoring. I am also very interested in the application of newly-developed big data techniques (such as machine learning methods) in the research of economics.
I will join Shanghai University of Finance and Economics as an Assistant Professor starting from Fall 2021.
I am co-organizing Graduate Student Chinese Economy Workshop.
I will present my paper "Peer Effects, Parental Migration and Children's Human Capital" at the Asian Meeting of the Econometric Society, the China Meeting of the Econometric Society, and CCER Summer Institute during the next few months.
The preliminary draft of my new paper "Regional Convergence or Just An Illusion? Place-based Land Policy and Spatial Misallocation" is available now! We will present it at Fudan University, Zhejiang University, and CCER Summer Institute during the next few months.
