I received my Ph.D. in economics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. My research covers a variety of topics, including gender, health, demography, and public finance. Before I become an economist, I was an attorney. My legal work ranged from intellectual property law in Taiwan to contracts management for Hewlett-Packard.
