I am Jiyuan Wang, and I am also happy if you just call me Jerry.
I am currently a tenure track assistant professor at School of Insurance and China Institute of Actuarial Science, Central University of Finance and Economics (Beijing). I am now an external affiliate of HEDG (Health Economics and Data Group) at York University.
I earned a PhD in economics at the University of Groningen in 2020 and a PhD in Management Science at the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2017.
I was a junior researcher at Netspar (Network for Studies on Pensions, Ageing and Retirement) from 2016 to 2020 and a lecturer at University of Groningen from 2019 to 2020.
My main research fields are Health Economics and Applied Microeconometrics. Currently I am working on several projects about long-term effects of exposure to adverse early-life environments and household/firm health insurance decisions.
