Haimeng (Hester) Zhang
Hello! I am an Assistant Professor in Economics at IESE Business School, Barcelona, Spain.
I hold a Ph.D. in Economics from Cornell University, an MA in Economics from NYU and a BA in Economics and Management from University of Oxford.
My research interests include empirical industrial organization, applied microeconomics and competition policy, with an emphasis on the study of strategic behaviors of firms and their impact on competition, market structure and welfare.
Before graduate school, I worked for 5 years in investment banking at UBS Investment Bank and Moelis & Company based in London, covering the telecoms, media, and technology sectors. I also interned as a research assistant to the chief economist at the Antitrust Bureau of the New York State Attorney General's Office.
