Welcome to my website! I am Kezhou Xiao (or Spencer and 肖可舟), currently a Ph.D. Candidate in Economics at London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).
My main research interests focus on political economy, development and growth, and entrepreneurship as well as innovation in a rapidly globalizing world. (My Google Profile)
The central research puzzle for an intellectual craftsman like me can be summarized in one sentence: what have CPC done right to transform a paddy field of rice into a giant technological and innovation hub (The cover picture is a view of the skyline of Shenzhen)?
The coming thesis would be titled, "Three Essays on Political Economy of Development". (Supervisors: Prof. Philippe Aghion, Prof. Sir Tim Besley, Prof. Gerard Padro I Miquel)
