Xiaoqing Zhou is a Ph.D. candidate in Economics at the University of Michigan. Her main research interests are in macroeconomics, applied econometrics, and household finance. Her research focuses on consumer finance choices at the microeconomic level and their macroeconomic implications. In her recent work, she studies how shocks in the housing market affect household borrowing and spending, which in turn explains the aggregate fluctuations in consumption and residential investment. She has also worked on the household-level heterogeneous impact of monetary policies, and the consumption and income effect of government spending shocks. In addition, she has worked on oil price forecasting and on the effects of lower oil prices on the U.S. economy.
