Welcome to Liyang's website.

I am an Economics Ph.D. student at the University of Pittsburgh and an Agora Fellow at the Center for Governance and Markets at the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs. My research interests include environmental economics, political economy, and public economics.

I am particularly interested in how climate-change-related environmental shocks change people’s perceptions and behavior and the policy implication of it. Specifically, my work explores how extreme weather events affect people’s perception of climate change and how green consumers value cleaner gasoline as a response to government regulations.
