Paul I. Ko
Welcome to my website!
I am a Ph.D. student in Economics at The Pennsylvania State University.
Before graduate school, I attended Carnegie Mellon University where I graduated with B.S. in Mathematics, B.S. in Economics with minor in Japanese in 2014.
My research interests are
International Economics (International Macroeconomics and Trade)
In particular, I am interested in understanding the relationship between trade and business cycle synchronization. In my job market paper, I evaluate different forces that affect co-movement of international business cycles.
I will be on the 2020-2021 job market!
I am a co-organizer of the virtual Graduate Student International Political Economy (GSIPE) workshop, along with Cleo O'Brien Udry and Alexander Kirss.
