Xiang Han

Xiang completed his Ph.D. under the supervision of Professor Rajat Deb in 2017 and joined the School of Economics at Shanghai University of Finance and Economics located in Shanghai, China. He was promoted to Associate Professor (without tenure) in Fall 2018. Prior to joining SMU, he received his MA in Economics from Northern Illinois University and his BA in Economics from Shandong University of Finance and Economics located in Jinan, China.

Xiang's primary research field is matching theory and market design as well as game theory and applied microeconomic theory. He has been working on the allocation of discrete resources, both theoretically and in practice. These theoretical investigations focus on the axiomatic properties of deterministic and random matching mechanisms. The insights gained have allowed him to analyze the real-world design of school choice policies and policies regarding the allocation of blood products. His research has already appeared in Games and Economic Behavior and Economic Letters.

I feel greatly indebted to my advisor as well as every other faculty member in the theory group at SMU. I believe their mentoring, support and encouragement will have a long-lasting impact on my academic career.
