Jiheum Yeon

My name is Jiheum Yeon, and I go by "Ji". I am an Associate Research Fellow at the Korea Insitute for International Economic Policy (KIEP) since September 2023. This is my personal website.

I completed my Ph.D. in Economics at the University of Minnesota in August 2023.

My research fields include Macro, Labor, Development, and Public Finance, emphasizing the role of technology and fiscal/political institutions in the labor market. I combine equilibrium models with microdata to answer questions in the areas above.
