Student Research Group
The Cities, Housing, and Society Research Group is a monthly workshop for graduate students interested in topics related to urban and housing economics. The group includes students from a number of PhD programs including economics (GSB and Department), finance, political economy, organizational behavior, and marketing. Urban and housing economics is typically spread across many more "traditional" fields, but rarely meet together in an organized setting. Students come from fields including labor, public, industrial organization, macro, political economy, finance, and trade.
The monthly workshop meets one Tuesday per month from 3:30pm-5pm. The workshop will take three formats. Some weeks we will have a reading group style meeting, with papers assigned ahead of time, and a group of student in charge of leading discussion. Other meetings we will have an outside speaker who is an expert on the topic of interest for the meeting. Some weeks we will have short presentations by students on their own research.
If you are a Stanford PhD student who would like to sign up to join the meetings, please email my assistant Josephine Choki Yan email@example.com to request to be added to the email list.
