Ph.D. Candidate in Economics
Lina Yu is a Ph.D. candidate in economics at Georgetown University. Her research interests are monetary policy and firm dynamics. She is working on identifying the heterogenous employment responses by different firm groups to monetary policy shocks. Motivated by her empirical findings, she is evaluating the role of housing prices and its effect on the observed heterogeneous responses. Her research utilizes both macro and micro data for the empirical analysis and a monetary business cycle model for counterfactual policy analysis. Yu received her B.A. in Hindi and economics from Peking University and her M.A. in international relations and international economics from Johns Hopkins University. Before joining Georgetown University, Yu worked as a research assistant at the International Monetary Fund.
