About me

My name is Cynthia Miao GONG, Ph.D. in Real Estate Economics and Finance from the Department of Land Economy, University of Cambridge. My research interests include behavioural economics, experimental economics, corporate finance, real estate finance and urban studies. Currently, I am participating in the early stage of a research project funded by the Technology Strategy Board UK concerning one of the greatest crises facing our society today: a burgeoning ageing population across many parts of the UK.

I am on the job market for the academic year 2017-2018. I am available for interviews through the academic year and will participate in AEA meeting 2018.
