Junyuan Chen


Welcome to my website! I am a macroeconomist studying short-run fluctuations and transmission of economic shocks with empirical and quantitative methods. My current research focuses on the production side of the economy, with a particular emphasis on the role of supply chain frictions and inventory behavior on shaping the dynamic responses of aggregate outcomes to shocks.

I am on the 2023-2024 job market.
