Hi! My name is Julia Zhu. I am a PhD candidate in Policy Analysis and Management at Cornell University.
I am an applied microeconomist. My research interests are in labor economics, economics of migration, and economics of education.
I have several lines of active research that investigate the causes and effects of high-skilled immigration, local impacts of immigration enforcement policies, consequences of climate change and environmental shocks, attitude formation towards immigrants and racial minorities, and population estimation using demographic techniques.
