About Me

Hi! My name is Xing Chen (陈醒). I am an assistant professor at School of International Relations and Public Affairs at Fudan University. I obtained my PhD in Environmental Economics and bachelor degree in Environmental Science from Peking University. My advisor was Professor Jintao Xu from National School of Development. Additionally, I spent a year as a visiting scholar at UC Berkeley, supervised by Professor Peter Berck.

My experience at Shanghai ignited my interest in Political Science and Public Administration. Extending beyond Environmental Economics, I now study Political Economy, Public Opinion, and Political Psychology. Leveraging real-world observations and applied econometrics, I provide evidence-based insights into how information, trauma, and cultural norms shape political trust and decision-making. My research connects public administration, political science, and economics, with work published in Governance, Public Performance&Management Review. If you want to collaborate, feel free to email me.
