PhD supervision

I am interested in supervising new PhD students researching these topics:

  • Econometrics
  • Stochastic frontier analysis
  • Health economics
  • Bayesian econometrics

Apply for a PhD »


I undertook my undergraduate degree in mathematics at Nanjing University, and my postgraduate and PhD degrees in Econometrics at Monash University.

Before joining University of Bath, I was a Post-doc research fellow in University of Technology Sydney.

My research interests cover econometrics, stochastic frontier analysis, health economics and Bayesian econometrics. I am happy to supervise PhD students undertaking research topics closely associated to my own.

Research interests

  • Econometrics
  • Stochastic frontier analysis
  • Health Economics
  • Bayesian Econometrics
