My name is Hao Yu, which is pronounced as “How You”. Yes, you are right. Calling my name sounds like about to start a question asking “you” how to do certain things. I like my name because it in fact represents very well who I am, a very curious person who is always eager to learn and experience new things.
I am an economist and my researches are mainly in the area of Industrial Organization. The topics related to firm productivity, market competition, product pricing and strategic interaction are some of the most fascinating ones to me. I love playing with data, and telling stories with my discoveries after careful empirical studies. Data analysis is a lot like treasure hunting for me. You will be surprised and amazed by ideas and insides you find about industry, market, firm and government. I believe people should find out what makes him/her hungry and put the heart into it, in order to be successful and respectable. I am lucky that I have found mine.
My family and I are into travel and have been to many extraordinary places. We do not at all oppose to the idea of moving to unfamiliar cities and countries either. Being able to experience diverse cultures and make friends with different people is kinda cool and inspiring. The five pictures at the top of my main page show five cities we have ever lived so far. They are Boston (MA USA), Vancouver (BC Canada), Lanzhou (Gansu China), Beijing (China) and Kingston (ON Canada). We still don’t know where our next home is going to be, but we are constantly looking.
