On November 29th, 2022 Dr. Xu Xhang presented her research entitled "Financial Vulnerability and Technology: Integrating Research, Teaching and the Production of Animated Cartoons on Financial Literacy" at our research colloquia. Dr. Zhang went into great detail on financial capability and technology i.e., how being technology savvy is relevant in explaining individuals’ short-term and long-term financial behavior. 

She also covered producing a series of animated videos on teaching not only the basic financial knowledge but also fostering critical thinking and tools pertaining to personal development on education and employment, which is key to address economic instability and financial insecurity among vulnerable populations.
