Welcome to my home page.


I am a Chair of Economics at the University of Hong Kong and a Professor of Economics at University College London (on leave). My research interests are in Applied Microeconomics, in particular Labor Economics.

Topics I am currently working on include:

  • the effects of business and payroll taxation on firms and workers

  • firm-provided family-friendly policies

I have served as a Joint Managing Editor at the Review of Economic Studies between 2016 and 2021. I am a Fellow of the British Academy and the Society of Labor Economics. I am currently a Co-Editor at the American Economic Review.
