Welcoming Dr. Jia Xiang to Harvard China Health Partnership

We are delighted to announce that Dr. Jia Xiang has started as a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow.

Dr. Jia Xiang received her Ph.D. in Economics from Penn State in 2020. She finds synergies between Health Economics and empirical Industrial Organization in research. Her previous work estimates a structural model to quantify the effects of asymmetric information in physician-patient interaction on medical treatment decisions and social welfare, using healthcare insurance claims data in China.

Dr. Xiang spoke in February on Physicians as Persuaders: Evidence from Hospitals in China.
