LinkedIn: Seung Yeon Jung

I am a fourth-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Economics at Michigan State University. 

I am an applied microeconomist whose research interest lies at the intersection of public economics and labor economics. I am interested in estimating causal effects using applied econometrics methods such as difference-indifferences and regression discontinuity designs. My projects leverage large-scale data such as retailer transaction records.


The central theme that runs through my projects is better understanding consumer behavior in various economic contexts. I am currently engaged in several projects that delve into the intricate dynamics of consumer choices and economic shocks.

Prior to coming to MSU, I received my M.S. and B.S.  both in Economics from Korea University
