Dr. Wookun Kim’s research interests lie broadly in the ﬁelds of regional and urban economics, international trade, and demography. His research focuses on estimating the causal effects of public policies (e.g. fiscal, environmental, trade, and labor policies) on the spatial distribution of economic activity and quantifying their welfare consequences. His research often combines an economic model, micro-level data, and quasi-natural experiments.
