Jinyong Jeong


I am a microeconomist who is interested mainly in resource allocation through matching and market design.

My research is centered around applications that improve social welfare, and I apply matching theory, market design, and mechanism design in developing innovative mechanisms, suggesting practical improvements, and devising incentive designs in practical applications. I augment this theoretical approach as needed with behavioral and experimental economics as well as algorithmic approaches to find synergies between matching theory, applied economics, and computer science.

 I am currently a postdoctoral associate at Graduate School of Public and International Affairs at the University of Pittsburgh, supervised by Sera Linardi, and works as a researcher in PittsSmartLiving Project. I also, co-organize the NBER Conference on Decentralization 2020.

I obtained my Ph.D. in Economics from Boston College in 2018, under the supervision of M. Utku Ünver, Tayfun Sönmez, and M. Bumin Yenmez.
