Jeong Yeol Kim is a 5th-year Ph.D. student studying Economics at the University of Arizona. Before starting his Ph.D., he worked at SK Telecom for eight years as a data analyst and served as an officer in the Korean Army for over two years. Inspired by his abundant industry experience, his research focuses on several antitrust policy issues including the collusive behavior of non-profit-maximizing firms, the effect of cartel leniency policies, the coordination of international cartel enforcement, multi-jurisdictional leniency policies, and individual/firm’s decision-making under uncertainty based on behavioral/experimental economics methods. He was recently awarded the National Science Foundation (NSF) Grant for his job market paper, “Strategic Delegation and Collusion: An Experiment.” He will start his academic career as a professor researching and teaching Antitrust Economics and Policy at Korea Development Institute (KDI) School of public policy and management in July 2023.
