Jinhu Li is a senior research fellow in Health Economics Research Program at the Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research at the University of Melbourne. She obtained her PhD in economics from McMaster University in Canada in 2011. Her research interests include the social economic determinants of health and health dynamics, incentives and performance in health care, and behavior of physicians. She is also interested in the application of micro-econometric techniques, in particular panel data modelling methods to various empirical topics in health economics. She is currently working on projects investigating family socio-economic determinants of health development during childhood and adolescence, the effect of education on health and health-related behaviours, the effect of competition on quality of health care provided by physicians, and the effect of financial incentives on doctors’ provision of after-hours care. In 2016 she received an Australian Research Council (ARC) awarded Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA) for her research on "Understanding the effects of parental education on child health outcomes".
