Wenhao Cheng

Welcome to my website! I am a PhD Candidate in Economics at University College London

My research interests lie in applied microeconomics, development economics and social networks. I'm particularly interested in the dynamics of relational influence and power structures within social & economic organizations.

In my job market paper, I discuss how power structures within outdated institutions may explain their persistence during economic take-offs. 

I am on the job market in 2023-24, available for interviews both at the EEA and the ASSA.

You can see my research page and CV here.
