I am Zizhong Yan, and currently an assistant professor at the Center for Econometrics and Microdata Practice (CEMP) of the Institute for Economics and Social Research (IESR), Jinan University in Guangzhou, China.
My research interests are econometrics, applied econometrics and the economics of education.
I am particularly interested in i) estimating treatment effects using both frequentist and Bayesian methods; ii) the Bayesian approach to missing data problem; and iii) higher education and education in developing countries.
I studied for my PhD at the University of Warwick from 2012 to 2018 (degree awarded in 2017). I have also worked as a part-time Research Officer at the University of Surrey (2017-18) and a Research Fellow at the University of Southampton (2018).
