Dr Yan Li has theoretical strength in industrial economics and regulatory economics, her main field of expertise is in econometrics though, especially panel-data analysis and issues in time series data analysis, and efficiency and productivity measures (using DEA and SFA). She is particularly interested in four major research areas: evaluation of regulatory policy, economic performance of network/utility industries (e.g., energy, telecoms, transport, banking), methodological issues on efficiency and productivity measures (especially the benchmarking frontier-based methods – parametric, non-parametric and semi-parametric techniques), and consumer choice/switching behaviour. She has been actively involved with the academic community by presenting papers in many leading international conferences and workshops. Full details of her publications and other research activities are available in her CV.
