Xiaoyue Shan

I am currently a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania. I received my Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Zurich in 2021.

I use a combination of field and lab experiments and quasi-experimental methods to study topics related to inequality, discrimination, and skill accumulation. A central theme of my research is to investigate how identity and social status shape beliefs, choices, and educational or labor market outcomes.

Fields: Labor Economics, Behavioral Economics, Gender Economics, Development Economics, and Applied Microeconomics.


I am on the 2022-23 job market and will be available for interviews.
