Yoonsoo Lee |
Yoonsoo Lee was formerly a research economist in the Research Department. His areas of research include macroeconomics, labor economics, and regional economics.
In the past he worked with confidential plant-level data to document patterns of job creation and destruction across states and patterns of firms entering and exiting the market across states. In previous research, he has found that declining or slowly growing states have not only lower rates of job creation and firm births but also lower rates of job destruction and plant deaths. He is investigating the factors (such as industry composition or policies) that can make such differences in firm and employment dynamics across states.
Dr. Lee earned his Ph.D. in economics from the University of Rochester.
