CV: Jianghua Liu
I got a PhD degree in human evolutionary biology from the University of Sheffield in 2011. Then, I did two years of post-doc at the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research, before joining Xi’an Jiaotong University in 2014. I am currently working on low fertility in contemporary human societies and its relevance to fertility policies.
