Faculty Supervisor: Fiona Burlig

Richard Lu is a pre-doctoral fellow at EPIC. He is working with Fiona Burlig on topics at the intersection of development and environmental economics. Richard received his B.A. in Economics and Statistics from the University of Chicago.

“As I am interested in working at the intersection of urban, environmental, and development economics, EPIC is the perfect environment where I can examine, in an empirical manner, the unique problems that we face in the 21st century. Here, I can explore my academic interests and find a supportive, close-knitted community of individuals to learn from and grow together. Outside of economics, I enjoy Renaissance history, architecture, and musicals.”
