Nancy Zhang received her B.S. degree in Physics from Nanjing University and M.A. degree in International Relations from Johns Hopkins University-Nanjing Center. She then pursued her Ph.D. in Economics at Texas A&M University in Texas. She joins Manchester University in 2016. She teaches microeconomics course at both introductory and intermediate level, as well as subfields of microeconomics such as behavioral economics.
Despite the fact that she earned her degree in economics, she likes to think of herself as a behavioral scientist. She is interested in how her research can help improve decision-makings for both individuals and society as a whole. Her research areas include behavioral economics, public economics, and labor economics. Teaching is another passion of her. It is her hope that students, through learning economics, can begin to see the world through an economic lens and master a powerful set of problem-solving tools economists use to make better decisions.
