Welcome to Linghui Han's homepage! 

I am an assistant professor of Economics at Westmont College. I hold PhDs in Economics from George Mason University and Peking University.

My research interest lies in the political economy of development and demography. My current research explores the relationship between industrial organization and institutional change. My future work will link geography, culture/religion, family institutions, formal institutions, demography, and development. My research subjects include states, firms, and families as different levels of societal organizations and their roots in social norms (culture/religion).

If you share similar research interests, I would be happy to discuss for possible collaboration to materialize a rich research agenda!
