Hao Zhang obtained her Ph.D. in economics from Tinbergen Institute and Erasmus University Rotterdam in 2017. Her research interests lie in the areas of health economics, microeconometrics, and health policy and systems research. Hao’s projects have been focused on China and they fall into three categories: (i) evaluation of health care reforms; (ii) examination of population health issues and their potential determinants; and (iii) exploration of the contributors to physician and patient satisfaction at tertiary hospitals. She has also been involved in a quasi-experiment in Qianghai to assess the effect of providing blood testing equipment on village doctors’ prescribing behaviors, especially the prescription of antibiotics. In January 2018, Hao will start her postdoc at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health to continue her research on health care reforms in developing countries.
