Welcome! My name is Anson Zhou.

I am a Ph.D. candidate in Economics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I am also a member of the Human Capital and Economic Opportunity Working Group (HCEO).

I will join the NBER as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow on Long-Term Fiscal Policy in July 2022. In the fall of 2023, I will join the University of Hong Kong as an Assistant Professor.

My research interests are quantitative macroeconomics, labor economics, and demographic economics. I seek to understand three core issues: the macroeconomic impacts of family policies, the implications of fertility choices on social mobility and welfare, and the role of demographic structure in shaping the aggregate economy.
