- Lecturer, Baptist University of Hong Kong
- PhD, University of Oxford.
- My research interests are in macroeconomics, particularly risk, saving, trade, growth, and labor markets.
- I have a keen interest in dynamic issues in mathematical models and panel data analysis.
- I teach macro, micro, asset pricing, international economics, labor, and mathematical topics.
- My previous positions include Head of Risk Management, Future Gate Consultants Ltd (2007-2017), Assistant Professor at the City University of Hong Kong (2007-2012), Assistant Professor at University of Macao (2003-2007), Lecturer at L'École Normale Supérieure Fontenay/Saint-Cloud/Lyon (2000-2002) and College Lecturer at Oxford University (1999-2000), where I was awarded a doctorate in economics (2000). I have a Master's in Economics from Cambridge University (1993-1994). I took my first degree at St Andrews University (1989-1993). I visited University of Modena in Italy (2002-2003), Columbia University in New York (1997), and the European University Institute in Florence (1994-1995).
- My PhD is from the university of Oxford (2000) on "Essays in Dynamic Economics: Growth, Unemployment, and Taxes" (September 2000).
Supervisor: John Flemming (Oxford). Committee : Christopher Bliss (Oxford), Charles Bean (LSE).

- I have written programs in R, Python, Matlab and clones, Stata, Maple, and occasionally in Ox, RATS, Gauss, Limdep, Mayavi. Recently I have mostly written in R, Maple, Python, and scilab. Below is a selection of programs I have used in my teaching. Some of the code is available from other public repositories. Some of the code is the product of joint work with others and cannot be shared at this time.
- Precautionary Saving. Maple program to simulate the tractable model of precautionary saving.
- Portfolio Choice. Maple program to simulate basic portfolio allocation problem.
- Neoclassical Growth. Matlab programs to simulate the Ramsey-Solow model of optimal consumption/saving.
- Habit Formation. Maple programs to simulate models of habit formation.
- Income Inequality. Stata programs to estimate the dynamics of U.S. income distribution.
