I am a Postdoctoral Fellow in Finance at Saint Louis University. I am affiliated with the Sinquefield Center for Applied Economic Research. Prior to joining SLU, I completed my Ph.D. in Economics at the University of California, Santa Barbara in June 2021.
I use empirical and experimental methods to explore policy-relevant topics in Household Finance, Experimental Finance, Corporate, and Public Finance. Some of my current projects utilize big data, such as cellphone/ taxi geolocation and bond statement text datasets.
Guangli Zhang’s research focuses on labor economics and behavioral economics. His current research explores the role of benefit payment frequency in the context of Unemployment Insurance policy. He also has a strong interest in studying the puzzling behaviors that exist in the household finance literature: for example, credit card debt payment puzzle, co-holding puzzle. His research has been supported by grants from the University of California, Santa Barbara. In his free time, Guangli enjoys taking photos.
