Jou-chun Lin


I am a PhD Candidate in the Department of Economics at the University of California, Davis. My focus is on public economics and political economy, specifically public programs.

My current research centers on federal transfer programs in the United States. This involves studying take-up behavior, variation in program implementation among states, and states' fiscal responses to federal incentives. I plan to expand my research to encompass more public policies. In the 2023-2024 academic year, I am actively seeking opportunities within the job market.
