Ying Lin

Ying Lin is a Ph.D. candidate in Economics at Kansas State University specializing in Industrial Organization, Microeconometrics, and Applied Microeconomics. She expects to complete her Ph.D. in May 2019.

Her research concerns the economic problems that fall within the field of Industrial Organization in the coffee and airline industries. Her job market paper studies the economic impacts in the U.S. brew-at-home coffee market associated with the introduction and growing presence of the single-cup coffee products in 2012. Her other two papers focus on the U.S. airline industry examining the pricing strategies and market mechanisms of airline pass-through behavior in response to the substantial crude oil price reduction since mid-2014.

As a Primary Instructor, she has a diversified teaching portfolio with experience in teaching principles and upper division levels in Microeconomics and Macroeconomics across her economics doctoral study.

She is currently on the job market and will be attending the upcoming ASSA/AEA meetings on January 4 - 6, 2019 in Atlanta, Georgia. She will also be attending the SEA conference on November 18 – 20, 2018 in Washington, DC.
