My Research

I am an economist at the UC Berkeley Gilbert Center. My research lies in the intersection of industrial organization, quantitative marketing, and digitization. I study how firms collect and use data and its implication on consumer behavior, pricing and competition, and privacy regulations. I focus on large and imperfectly competitive markets with information and incentive problems, such as U.S. auto insurance and Chinese retail e-commerce.

In my research, I combine economic theory with econometric techniques to extract insights from large datasets, often obtained from independent collaborations with firms. I specialize in developing formal analytical models to quantify complex but empirically important features of consumer demand and firm conduct.

I received my Ph.D. in Business Economics and M.A. in Economics from Harvard University. I got my B.A. in Economics and Mathematics from UC Berkeley. Find out more at yjin.io.
