Georgia Institute of Technology

Jancy Ling Liu is a Ph.D. candidate at Georgia Tech, specializing in Environmental and Energy Economics. Born and raised in a small town in southwest China, she is the first generation in her family to attend university and pursue a doctorate. Her two-year working experience at a FinTech company in Beijing stimulated a curiosity that led her back to academia, where she completed an M.S. in Statistics and Economics from Georgia Tech in 2019. Her research investigates the complex relationships between environmental factors and human behavior, specifically focusing on power plant retirements' effects on migration patterns and the influence of social norms on eco-labeled products. Beyond her academic pursuits, she advocates for diversity and inclusion, actively participating in DEI events and striving to contribute to the advancement of underrepresented groups in the field. As a prospective mentee at AMIE, she is eager to enhance her research skills, connect with like-minded researchers, and contribute to inclusivity in economics.
