About

Ruru Hoong is a PhD candidate in Economics at Harvard University and HBS.

Her research interests currently (very broadly) span behavioural, public econ/inequality/social policy (& intersections with law), IO, and antitrust. She graduated with a B.A. in Economics from Stanford in 2019.

When not doing research, she likes to read, write, dance tango, listen to jazz, and throw clay ‘round a wheel (mostly to complement her excessive tea consumption). She is a 2020 graduate of Faber Academy and is currently writing and re-writing her first novel. Her latest writing can be found here.
