Jinny Leong

Jinny aspires to use economics to inform public policymaking and contribute to better outcomes for New Zealanders. Jinny expects to undertake research to address topical economic policy issues and has been identified as a role model for young women to pursue a career in economics. Below we share an excerpt from her progress report to date:

"The Michaelmas term was dedicated to the core courses in Economics – Microeconomics, Macroeconomics and Econometrics. These courses are both academic and technical. After working at the Reserve Bank of New Zealand for several years, it was refreshing to revisit the theory underpinning how our economies work, at a much deeper level than I learnt in my undergraduate studies. These courses enabled me to deepen my understanding of the fundamentals of economics and equipped me with stronger technical skills, which I intend to use as New Zealand’s economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic continues."

"I have found it very inspiring to learn from lecturers who are experts in their respective fields. I have learnt as much from working closely with my classmates as I have from my lectures. From Cambridge’s unique college system to its world-class learning environment, there are many highlights from my time in Cambridge so far. However, one of the highlights is getting to know people of many different nationalities and diverse backgrounds."
