Hyuncheol Bryant Kim, 김현철, 金炫澈

I am an assistant professor in the Department of Policy Analysis and Management at Cornell University. I am an applied empirical micro-economist focusing on causal impacts of policy interventions. The main goal of my research is to understand the fundamental relationship between human capital investment and individual and societal well being in Africa and Asia, which is insufficiently understood. I approach the questions of human capital through a focus on health, education, and labor. I received PhD in Economics from Columbia University, USA. My research is published in leading economics and general interest journals such as Science, Review of Economics and Statistics, Journal of Public Economics, Journal of Health Economics, and other international journals.
