About Me

My name is Yurim Lee and I am an Economics Ph.D. candidate at the University of Washington in Seattle. My main advisor is Fabio Ghironi. I will be at the upcoming European Job Market in Rotterdam, Netherlands in December 2019 and the ASSA meeting in San Diego in January 2020.

My research interests are macroeconomics, international economics, labor market, structural reform and entrepreneurship. Specifically, I study why workers have an incentive to become small mom-and-pop business owners and how this occupational choice can have an effect on business cycle dynamics, macroeconomic inefficiency, and policy reforms.

Before my Ph.D., I received my B.A. from Yonsei University and Masters from Seoul National University in Seoul, Korea, majoring in Economics in both schools.

I am originally from Korea and speak fluent English and Korean. I enjoy experimenting with different recipes and traveling. The photo on the left is from my recent trip to Rome.
