Euncheol Shin (신은철 in Korean)

I am an assistant professor of economics at KAIST College of Business. I am interested in experimental economics, political economy, and social networks. I received my B.S. in mathematics and B.A. in economics from Yonsei University in South Korea. In 2016, I received my Ph.D. in the social sciences (equiv. Ph.D. in economics) from the California Institute of Technology, under the advisement of Professor Leeat Yariv. Subsequently, I was hired as an assistant professor of economics at Kyung Hee University in South Korea, and I have been at KAIST College of Business since 2018.
