Fan Wang

I am an Associate Professor at the University of Houston's Department of Economics.

I am an applied microeconomist and development economist with research interests in the determinants of human capital formation and financial inclusion.

My research explores the unequal effects of government policies, environmental shocks, and technological changes on children, workers, and households, generally in the setting of low- and middle-income countries. Through the lens of structural models, I investigate optimal policies taking into account equilibrium responses.

I hold a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Pennsylvania and a B.A. in Economics and History from the University of Chicago.
