In the first of our series talking to academics from the School of Economics and Finance, we welcome Dr Tim Lee. Recorded via Zoom, we explored what it was like to study at Queen Mary University and how students can get the most from the experience.
Tim gained his Ph.D. and M.Sc. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, U.S.A., and B.A. from Seoul National University in Korea. Prior to joining Queen Mary, Tim was an Assistant Professor at Toulouse School of Economics, France from 2016 to 2018, and University of Mannheim, Germany from 2011 to 2016. Although primarily a macroeconomist, he combines data and methods from labour and public economics to study the dynamics of inequality, and how it is related to the education, occupations and industries. His work has been published in the Journal of Political Economy, the Economic Journal, and the Journal of Monetary Economics.

Despite the global pandemic of 2020 forcing us all into lock down, it wasn't going to stop us talking to current student Jack Ivory of his experiences at Queen Mary University and the School of Economics. As a consequence this podcast episode has been recorded via Zoom. The first in a series of conversations with students from the School of Economics and Finance, we explore with Jack what it is like to study at Queen Mary and what advice he would give those thinking of doing their degree at the University, in particular the placement option that Jack is currently undertaking.
