Zheng Zeng, Ph.D.
Dr. Zeng’s primary research focus is on macroeconomics, applied macroeconomics, and time series econometrics. She is actively working on a series of theoretical and empirical research projects investigating the linear and nonlinear interactions among credit market frictions, time-variant uncertainty and monetary economic fluctuations. Her other projects focus on inflation expectations and central banking. Dr. Zeng has received the summer research grants three years in a row from Schmidthorst College of Business.
Dr. Zeng likes research and teaching. “I like solving puzzles and actually learn more from teaching students to solve puzzles. Teaching makes me a better economist.” As a former research assistant in the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, she brings valuable experience in policy-oriented issues to the classroom.
She recommends all business students to read “Slapped by the Invisible Hand: The Panic of 2007,” by Gary Gorton because she believes that the book provides one of the most plausible explanations of the most recent financial meltdown and it offers a very different crisis theory from other books on financial crisis.
