Personal Statement:

My work focuses on economic development and land use. I ask questions like “Why some regions are rich while others are poor?” and “What policy tools can help create jobs and boost innovation?”. I also examine the consequences of economic development, such as the encroachment into agricultural areas, sprawling development patterns and pollution. My work is both interdisciplinary and international. I adopt methods from economics, statistics, geography, sociology and computer science, and have studied countries including the United States, China, Australia and Russia.
