Thang Dang. Vietnamese Economist.
I am an applied micro-economist working on policy-relevant topics in labour, education, health and development economics. I received a PhD in economics from the University of York in 2021 and a master’s degree in economics from Victoria University of Wellington in 2015. My research focuses on the spillover effects of human capital and health across generations, cultural and social origins of socioeconomic inequalities, and human development consequences of policy reform and development programmes.
I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Centre for Fertility and Health (CeFH), Norwegian Institute of Public Health (FHI). For my further information: CV, ORCiD, Google Scholar and Twitter. E-mail: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
