Jane Zhang joined UNSW in 2019. She is currently an Associate Professor in Economics, UNSW Business School. She holds a PhD in Economics from UC Berkeley, and a BA in Economics from Stanford University.
Jane’s research interest is to examine how preferences and beliefs are shaped by policy, how they interact with incentives, and the role that they play in determining a wide range of social outcomes. Her approach combines the use of tools from experimental economics with the exploitation of natural experiments, field experiments, and controlled lab manipulations to make causal inferences about the determinants of preferences and beliefs.
Jane has published and forthcoming articles in the Economic Journal, the Journal of Political Economy, the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. the Quarterly Journal of Economics, and the Review of Economics and Statistics.
