Welcome to my personal website! My name is Jun Zhao (I also go by Bean). I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in Economics at Vanderbilt University.
I am currently on the job market in 2020-2021. I will be available for virtual interviews, and interviews at the 2020 EEA Job Market and the 2021 ASSA Annual Meeting.
In my job market paper, I develop a two-stage contest model with entry and also a model for voters to study the effects of campaign spending on electoral outcomes given endogenous candidate entry in the U.S. Senate elections.
