About Me

I am a Ph.D. candidate in economics at the University of Calgary. My research interests are in macroeconomics, quantitative economics and finance, and applied econometrics. I am also passionate about teaching in the areas of economics, statistics, and finance. I won the 2020 Excellence in Doctoral Dissertation Award at the University of Calgary. I am also nominated for the 2021 Excellent Teaching Assistant Award at the University of Calgary.

My job market paper studies the monetary measure and provides insights into the monetary policy during the Covid-19 pandemic. This is the first paper to study the demand for credit card transaction services and the most liquid monetary assets in a system. This paper substantiates the microeconomic foundation of the credit card monetary aggregates and shows that the credit card-augmented monetary aggregates are a more accurate measure of money compared to the simple sum monetary aggregates used by central banks.

I am on the job market for 2020-2021 and I expect to graduate in 2021. I am open to relocation on a global level and I am available for interviews. You can contact me at jinan.liu1@ucalgary.ca .
