Dr. Ping YU graduated from Peking University in 2000 with a B.S. in Mathematics and Economics, and in 2002 with an M.S. in Finance. He obtained his M.S. in Economics in 2005, and Ph.D. in Economics in 2009, both from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Before joining the School of Economics and Finance at The University of Hong Kong as Assistant Professor in 2014, he was a lecturer at the University of Auckland, New Zealand for five years.
Ping’s research interests are in theoretical and applied microeconometrics, especially in threshold regression and treatment effects evaluation. He has published several papers in academic journals including Journal of Econometrics, Econometrics Journal, Economic Letters, Econometric Theory, Rationality and Society, Econometric Reviews, and Computational Statistics & Data Analysis.
