Hoyoung Yoo


Welcome! My name is Hoyoung (pronounced as "Ho-Young"), a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Economics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. 

I study the effects of labor and regional/urban policies on labor market outcomes, welfare, and inequality using a wide range of datasets, reduced-form analysis, and structural models.


I will join the Department of Economics at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign as an Assistant Professor in Fall 2025 after one year as an instructor.

I will visit the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia from 7/16/2024 (Tuesday) to 7/19/2024 (Friday).

Feel free to contact me at hyoo36@wisc.edu anytime.
