Jin Zhou’s research mainly focuses on understanding the impact of education on the lifecycle outcomes of individuals. Recently, her work has focused on two main aspects: skill development during early childhood; and education decisions involving location choices. For the former, she currently focuses on research on the China REACH project, especially on identifying latent skills in children, understanding the child skill development process, and designing and studying interventions aimed at accelerating the child learning process. For the latter, she is interested in how work location decisions affect individuals’ education choices and how the parents’ work location decisions influence their children’s skill development.
