Yuriy O. Bots
Ph.D. Candidate, Economics
Krannert School of Management
I’m a 5th year Ph.D. student in economics and expect to graduate in May 2013. Prior to Ph.D. studies I have received BA and MS in Econiomics from National Technical University of Oil and Gas in the Ukrane. In addition, I worked as an economist at the production plant and was involved in cost analysis, pricing and marketing.
My primary fields of research interest are International Trade and Industrial Organization. In the job market paper I look at the relationship between product differentiation and export success. Future research will focus on questions related to product characteristics and trade. In addition, I enjoy interacting with students and was privileged to receive multiple teaching awards. Overall, I’m looking forward to develop further as a productive researcher and an inspirational teacher.
