Haimeng (Hester) Zhang

Hello! I am a Ph.D. candidate in Economics at Cornell University.


My research interests include empirical industrial organization and applied microeconomics, with an emphasis on the study of strategic behaviors of firms and their impact on 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.

I am on the job market during the 2021-2022 cycle.
