Xiaoyue Zhang


I am a PhD candidate at the Department of Econometrics & Operations Research at Tilburg University. I expect to graduate in the first half of 2023.

My main research interest is applying structural models to study productivity improvement and technology progress. My first project uses micro-econometric methods and a structural model to study misallocation and TFP gains. My second project studies the optimal product subsidies for Chinese electrical vehicle manufacturers to reduce the technology gap between them and foreign car companies. 

Research interests:

  • development economics

  • empirical industrial organization
