Yi Huang's research interests lie at the intersection of international macroeconomics and finance. He is particularly interested in investigating the determinants of financial activity and economic development in the era of globalization.
The global financial crisis and the substantial trade and financial imbalances have attracted a great deal of attention from academics and policy makers. But few have studied the underlying dynamics. His research explains how firms’ financing decision and investment behavior drive financial markets and labor markets. Utilizing extensive firm-level micro datasets he has put together, and applying econometric tools, his research links firm dynamics with capital flows and current account movements.
