Dahl Scholar, 2019 - 2020

Liana Wang is conducting research with the advising of Professor of Economics Costas Meghir on how the U.S. tax and welfare system affects income inequality on a national scale. Her project focuses on how measures of inequality shift by imputing national and state taxes and transfers using data from the Annual Social and Economic Supplement of the Current Population Survey from 1977 to the present. Liana is a senior majoring in Economics and a member of the Multidisciplinary Academic Program in Human Rights at Yale Law School. Her previous research has examined migration and childcare, and she hopes her findings can help contribute to the making of better policy in the pursuit of a more equal society.
