Yuanhao Niu received his pre-doctoral training at Beijing Language and Culture University, University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign and Universidade de Sao Paulo (FEA/USP) Brazil. His research interests include International Finance and Macroeconomics, especially emerging markets.
I try to understand how emerging market governments (e.g. Latin American Countries) optimally finance their expenditures subject to the scrutiny of international creditors. Malfunctioning democracy could lead to sovereign default crisis, which brings mass destruction to human development.
