Runjing Lu

I specialize at the intersection between behavioral finance and labor economics. My work employs modern empirical methods and naturally occurring data to understand: (1) the economic and behavioral factors influencing financial professionals, investors and workers, and (2) how stock market fluctuations affect various aspects of investors' lives. I am also interested in exploring unintended consequences of government policies.
