Two Postdoc Researchers Hired for MIT-SUL / PDP
The SUL Lab is pleased to welcome incoming postdoctoral associate Seunghoon Lee, who recently gave a presentation to the team about his ongoing research work. Seunghoon is interested in understanding how households respond to market-based environmental policies and estimating the resulting costs and benefits of those policies, particularly in the area of natural disaster and waste management. Before graduate school, Seunghoon worked at the Ministry of Economy and Finance in South Korea. There, he focused on financial management reforms, most recently leading an evidence-based policy initiative. He received BA in Economics from Seoul National University, an MPP from Harvard University, and his Ph.D. in public policy from the University of Chicago.
The Center also welcomes back Simon Camilo Büchler, who is a Postdoctoral Fellow and Director of the Price Dynamics Platform. Dr. Büchler has been active in applying economic research to the real estate industry. His research interests include public, urban, and real estate economics. Dr. Büchler received a B.A. and M.A. in Economics from the University of St. Gallen and a Ph.D. from the University of Bern. His thesis focused on how economic forces affect the real estate market.
