Welcome! My name is Hanzhe Zhang. I am a fifth year PhD student in the
Department of Economics at the University of Chicago. My committee
consists of Gary Becker (co-chair), Pierre-Andre Chiappori, Scott
Kominers, Philip Reny (co-chair), and Hugo Sonnenschein. My dissertation
studies marital, educational, and occupational choices in an equilibrium
investment-and-matching framework. I have also worked on auctions market
design. I was one of the 30 winners of the 2012 Yahoo! Key Scientific
Challenges, and worked at Microsoft Research New England in the summer
of 2012. In 2010 at the age of 20, I graduated from the University of
Pennsylvania in three years with a master's degree in mathematics and
honors bachelor's degrees in mathematics and economics. I won the
Bernard Shanbaum Prize for the best student and the Lawrence Klein award
Prize for the best thesis.
I will be available for interview at the CEEE in Toronto on December
5-6, 2014, and at the ASSA in Boston on January 2-5, 2015.
