Rongzhang Wang

Rongzhang Wang's research interests include applied econometrics, labor economics and urban economics. The broad set of topics allows me to apply econometric methods to empirical questions, dealing with common concerns beneath different problems.

She has provided research assistance to two projects with the Luskin Center. One of them estimates the effect of government rebates on residential solar power adoption. The other studies the pricing of electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) as the EV market grows rapidly in Southern California.
