Ronald Hung, a PhD student from the Department of Economics, has received the 2020-21 Sir Edward Youde Memorial Fellowship for postgraduate research students, making him one of the three awardees from the eight UGC-funded universities. Ronald will receive a grant of HK$50,000 to support his academic research.
Ronald’s research interest lies in macroeconomics, and inflation expectation formation in particular.
