Xiaoyang Ye is a doctoral student studying the economics of education at the University of Michigan’s Center for the Study of Higher and Postsecondary Education and the Education Policy Initiative. Prior to Michigan, Xiaoyang received a BA in economics and a MA in the economics of education from Peking University.

Xiaoyang’s research focuses on the causes and consequences of education policies and individual schooling choices in both K-12 and higher education. He is currently examining effective ways to organize schools to improve low-income students’ college access and choices in both China and the United States, including large scale school reforms, managerial and personnel policies, and informational interventions using big data methods. With collaborators, Xiaoyang has been developing and implementing the Bright Future of China Project, a college-going advising program serving about 1 million high school graduates in the poorest areas of China. He received a National Academy of Education/Spencer Dissertation Fellowship for the 2017 academic year to support this research.
