Curriculum Vitae (CV)

Jianlin Wang is an assistant professor at the Leavey School of Business at Santa Clara University. He conducts research in financial economics, international economics, and macroeconomics. One of his research efforts investigates how multinational enterprises and global banks affect the transmission of economic shocks, specifically through their vast and complex internal capital markets. He is also studying the impact of uncertainty shocks on the financial markets and real economy, as well as the pro- and anti-competitive effects of tariff liberalization. His recent work on the heightened uncertainty induced by the U.S.-China trade war has been featured on the blog of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas and the SITE conference on the Macroeconomics of Uncertainty and Volatility at Stanford. His work on the business complexity and operational risk of U.S. bank holding companies has been published in the Journal of Monetary Economics. Additionally, Professor Wang is also pursuing a diverse, but synergistic, portfolio of research topics. These include, for example, the impact of climate policy uncertainty, the role of corporate ownership in the exchange rate pass-through, and estimating the effect of fiscal policy using excess stock returns. Jianlin received his Ph.D. in economics from the University of California, Berkeley. He has taught undergraduate and MBA students during his Ph.D. program. Prior to graduate school, he worked at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston for three years and holds a B.S. in economics and mathematics from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
