About my research

Financial markets play vital roles in many economic activities. For example, the financial markets play a key role in raising funds for companies,households’ saving and portfolio choice, or providing insurance against various risks. I have studied the functioning of the financial markets from the macroeconomic viewpoint. Specifically, I have analyzed how financial market development affects the income distribution and the economic stability of a country. In addition, in the process of economic development, previously used technologies are often replaced by other technologies. By constructing macroeconomic models that take into account the endogenous switching mechanisms of technologies, I also have analyze how such technology switches affect the pattern of economic development.
