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.
