2013: Xiaowen Lei
"When I was a little girl, I always thought that I would be a pianist. So when I started my Bachelor of Economics in Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2007, I wasn’t that passionate about economics, until one day I found it powerful. Economics could have something to say on almost every social issues happening in our real life.
In 2011, I came to SFU as a master student and stayed here as a PhD student. My research interest lies in Macroeconomics and Asset pricing, especially the role of financial market on wealth inequality."
