Hi. My name is Sungmin Park and I am a second-year Ph.D. student in Economics at Ohio State University. My research interest is in economic theory and labor economics. I am most interested in working on the optimal informational design of scoring, such as that measuring students' academic performance, workers' performance, or households' creditworthiness. I am also working on the effects of Advanced Placement coursework on students' learning in college. I also love playing the cello and have been playing for more than 20 years.
