Junho is an incoming first-year PhD student. He is currently interested in environmental and climate economics, especially how climate change and societies’ perception of climate change affect socioeconomic growth and inequality through technical change, disaster prevention, and other forms of adaptation and mitigation.
Before starting his PhD, Junho worked at the Climate Impact Lab, specifically on coastal projects aiming to quantify the economic impact of climate change through sea-level rise and tropical cyclones. He has a BA in economics from Princeton and a MA in computational social science (economics focus) from the University of Chicago. Junho enjoys (but isn’t particularly good at) playing guitar and cooking in his free time.
