Before joining Oxford, I obtained Ph.D. in Economics from Simon Fraser University and worked at the Bank of Canada.

Benson Tsz Kin Leung

University of Cambridge

I am a post-doctoral research associate at the University of Cambridge-INET Institute, and completed my PhD at the Toulouse School of Economics.

My research mainly focuses on understanding how individuals make inferences and decisions with limited cognitive ability, and the mechanism behind different behavioral abnormalities. I also build on my studies of individual decision making to draw implications on market and political competition, and welfare analysis of public policies.

Shaoran Li

University of Cambridge

I'm Shaoran Li, a fifth-year Ph.D. student in Economics at the University of Cambridge. My research interests are Econometrics, Asset Pricing and Portfolio Management.
My Job Market Topic is A Semiparametric Characteristics-based Factor Model, which consists of two papers. "A Dynamic Network of Arbitrage Characteristics" approximates and estimates the model and uses a power enhanced test to investigate arbitrage characteristics. "A Dynamic Semiparametric Characteristics-based Model for Optimal Portfolio Selection" constructs the factor-mimicking sub-portfolios through characteristics-based factor loadings and invests in these sub-portfolios guided by predicting the factor’s risk premium.
