Hi, welcome to my personal website! I am a Ph.D. Candidate at the Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management, Cornell SC Johnson College of Business at Cornell University, where I'm fortunate to be advised by Prof. Chris Forman. I am also completing a Ph.D. minor at the Department of Computer Science. I am on the 2021-2022 academic job market. 


My research lies at the intersection of economics of information systems, innovation, and firm strategy. I explore the factors influencing business process innovation in IT, and the implications of IT for inventive activities. 

Before joining Cornell, I earned my B.S. in Agricultural and Resource Economics at Renmin University of China, and spent one exchange semester at the University of Copenhagen.
