Q&A with Dunli Li

1. What is your role and what does it involve? I am a Teaching Fellow in the Department of Economics at UCL and am teaching economics to both economics and non-economics majors. In the meantime, I am the skills lab coordinator.

As one of the personal tutors, I provide guidance and support to students. Also, I’ve recently become the Deputy BSc Director in the department.

2. How long have you been at UCL and what was your previous role(s)?
I joined UCL in Fall 2016. Prior to that, I was a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Economics at Queen’s University Belfast with research, teaching and administrative responsibilities.

3. Tell us about a project you’re working on that you find particularly interesting.
I am now working on a project to analyse the impact of class attendance on academic performance. In particular, I am investigating how Lecturecast affects class attendance and whether the relationship between class attendance and academic performance depends on the availability of Lecturecast.

4. If you could teach any economics course, what would it be?
Economic data analysis.

5. What is your favourite economic joke?
“Give me a one-handed economist. All my economists say, ‘on the one hand… on the other hand” ― Harry Truman
