Hsi-Ling Liao is a Ph.D. candidate in Public Policy at the New York University Wagner Graduate School of Public Service and a Doctoral Fellow at the NYU Furman Center for Real Estate and Urban Policy. Her research interests lie at the intersection of urban economics, housing policy, and social inequality. She is particularly interested in examining how different forces shape disparate neighborhood outcomes and ways that public policies can address inequality and improve housing affordability and access to opportunity.
She is on the 2022-23 job market. Her job market paper uses a quasi-experimental design to study the effect of large-scale changes in land-use regulations (“rezoning”) on the local housing market and residential mobility patterns in New York City.
