Macroeconomics, International Finance, Environmental Economics, Financial Economics (real options), Labour Economics, Chinese Economy
A key feature of my work is that it bridges different areas of economics as well as different disciplines. Currently, I am working in a number of areas:
- International finance & Chinese Economy, with a focus on exchange rates policies by central banks and theoretical development of target zone models for China, Hong Kong and Japan;
- Environmental economics, with a focus on the effects of climate change and the design of environmental policies when policy makers face fat-tailed uncertainty, ambiguity in uncertainties, and forecast uncertainties in climate change scientific forecasting;
- Macroeconomics and Labour Economics, with a focus on firms’ dynamic investment and employment decisions under uncertainty and their impact on international competitiveness, including China consumption and housing prices interactions, and research on the China New Contract Labour Law.
