Student research papers showcased on Warwick Monash portal

Once again, we proudly report on the publication of 14 student papers on the Warwick Monash Economics Student Papers (WM-ESP) portal which contains some of the most exciting undergraduate and postgraduate dissertations of Economics students from Warwick and Monash.

This is the fourth round of student papers published on the WM-ESP portal, launched in September 2021, showcasing now 56 dissertations which have been carefully selected based on their academic quality and originality. They cover a wide range of topics from all areas of economics, and focusing on some of the most pressing global issues that young economists are trying to understand and solve: inequality, poverty, the pandemic, climate emergency, obesity and healthcare, and many others.

We congratulate all the students selected and wish them every success in their future careers.

Below we feature six Warwick MSc graduates and their research papers:

In her paper, Xuefan PanLink opens in a new window used computational linguistic approaches to analyse the response of U.S. financial market to the Federal Open Market Committee statements and minutes. She commented:

"I am so happy and honoured to have my work selected for the portal. Choosing a challenging topic combining text mining and monetary policies was very daunting at first, as I had to learn everything from scratch. Towards the end, I found the whole journey rewarding and fulfilling as it enabled me to hone my data analysis and programming skills. I feel that all my efforts have paid off. I am still considering my career choices, but I will always have good memories of Warwick when I embark on new adventures."

Reene Zhou's paperLink opens in a new window explores whether education can change risk preference, using evidence from Indonesia and Mexico.

Eleni Sandi's paperLink opens in a new window examines the impact of the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standard on Property Prices in England and Wales.

Xinghua Qi's paperLink opens in a new window explores the role of social contact in the infectious disease spreading, looking at evidence from the 1918 flu pandemic in Sweden.

Taoshen Chen's studyLink opens in a new window provides novel evidence on how monitoring and evaluation affects racial health inequality, with data from the Primary Care Access and Quality Program in Brazil.

Shun Tonami's paperLink opens in a new window gives a fresh perspective on the New Keynesian Philips Curve (NKPC) when combining the rational inattention hypothesis. He said:

“I am very pleased to have my paper published on the portal. My research goal was to combine economic models with data science structure theoretically. I've learnt in the MSc course that economics can sometimes feel isolated as a field and I hope that my paper is trying to change that perception.”

"My aim is to facilitate a further development in economics, so I really appreciate this opportunity to have my paper read by economists and future students. And if my paper provides inspiration for others to apply field theory to economics, I feel my goal would be achieved. I'm planning to do an MSc in data science followed by a PhD in Economics and to contribute to society as a macroeconomist."
