Graduate Fellow


Han Yan, a graduate fellow at the Baker Institute Center for Energy Studies, is currently working toward a Ph.D. in economics at Rice University. She brings a solid academic background, with a B.S. in financial mathematics from Wilson College and an M.S. in financial statistics from the London School of Economics and Political Science. Yan's work involves examining the effects of state restrictions on residential natural gas consumption in California, with a particular focus on their implications for consumer welfare and energy usage patterns. Additionally, she delves into the role of storage in shaping a liquid natural gas market in China and investigates the impact of urbanization on the shift toward cleaner cooking fuels in Chinese households. She is also interested in intra-household bargaining and its impact on household decision-making.
