Dr Xiaocheng (Sam) Hu joined the ECEHH in January 2019. At ECEHH, in collaboration with a local SME, Sam works on the Innovate UK project and applies his analytical skills to understand the contribution of volatile anaesthetics to global warming.
Sam holds a PhD in Economics from University of Southampton, United Kingdom. His primary research interests lie in personnel economics and industrial organisation, with a particular focus on teamwork, incentive schemes, and their economic and social effects.
Sam also has a deep interest in inequality. In 2018, he was involved in a project at the Southern Policy Centre (part-time) on whether different patterns of material inequality at the household level mirror in individual outcomes across the life course such as health and education.
