Expertise

high school elementary Math (algebra, geometry, probability...), Economics (micro, macro)

### Project ideas

#### Microeconomic Analysis (with Math)

In this project, you will learn the theoretical foundations of microeconomic models. Topics include game theory, monopoly and oligopoly market, consumer preferences, and information asymmetry. You will acquire intuition about key concepts in micro: marginal gain/cost, expected utility, and tradeoff. Corresponding math will be taught such as calculus and basic set theory. A research paper and some problem sets are expected.

#### Macroeconomics Analysis (with Math)

In this project, you will learn the theoretical basis of macro models across several aspects of the real world such as long term economic growth for a country, personal income and consumption decision, interaction between firms and workers, and the setup of a bank. Corresponding math will be taught like calculus and constrained optimization. A research paper and some problem sets are expected.
