Ruixue JIA is an Assistant Professor of Economics at the School of Global Policy & Strategy at the UNiversity of California at San Diego. She is also a Global Scholar at the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research, and Hellman Faculty Fellow at the University of California designed to provide early-career funding to promising UC faculty as they progress toward tenure.

Ruixue JIA is focused her on political economy, development economics, economic history and China. She uses organization theory to closely examine the incentives of politicians, particularly to understand how such incentives affect growth, the environment and workplace safety. She has researched what determines the selection of politicians in China and how the incentives for politicians affect pollution and coal mine accidents.

Additionally, she has investigated the importance of historical events that have affected economic development. Using historical data, she has researched the long-run development paths of treaty ports and looked at the impact of weather shocks on peasant revolts.

Ruixue JIA will present a paper, joint with Li HONGBIN, at the next PEPES Seminar on the theme:
