Hi. My name is Tianxu Chen, and I am a PhD candidate in economics at Boston University.
My fields of interest include Health Economics, Labor Economics,
Development Economics, and Industrial Organization.
I study how health insurance coverage affects marriage behavior, i.e. marriage lock, in various markets for health insurance. My research is also highly relevant to the design of health insurance exchanges markets under the new health care reform.
I will be available for interview at the ASSA/AEA annual meeting in Philadelphia in January, 2014.
