Sheena Yoon

PhD candidate, University of Utah

I am a PhD candidate in Economics and a Research Fellow at the Economic Evaluation Unit. Previously, I was a Researcher at the International Labour Organization (ILO) in Geneva, Switzerland and an Information Designer at The World Bank.

I received my MA in Economics from American University in D.C. with a concentration in feminist economics. My research interests and public policy work span across the fields of labor economics and relations, race and gender analysis (stratification economics), justice and equity, macroeconomics, political economy, and social protection. Currently, my research focuses on the geospatial analysis of social and racial disparities of the correctional population in non-metropolitan areas.
