Hi, welcome to my personal website! I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Stanford Digital Economy Lab, under the Stanford Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence (HAI).
My research interest lies at the intersection of economics of innovation, information systems, and business strategy. In my current research, I explore factors that influence technology adoption by firms, and how technology adoption influences follow-on innovations. I'm also interested at the power law distribution of wages within each occupation, and how digitization might have affected it over time.
Before joining Stanford, I received my PhD in Managerial Economics from Cornell SC Johnson College of Business, and a graduate minor in Computer Science from Cornell University. I also hold a bachelor’s degree from Renmin University of China, and spent one exchange semester at the University of Copenhagen.
