He has previously held positions at leading academic institutions such as University of Cambridge, University of Edinburgh and University of Leeds. His notable contributions to econometrics include asymmetric autoregressive distributed lag model, unit root tests in ESTAR framework, and the long-run structural VAR modelling approach.
Education and Career
Yongcheol Shin received his BA in English Literature in 1983 and MA in Economics at the Hankuk University of Foreign Studies, South Korea in 1985. He received his Ph.D in Economics from Michigan State University in 1992. Currently, Shin is a Professor at the Department of Economics and Related Studies at the University of York.

He was a visiting professor at the SungKunKwan University, Seoul, and Wits University, Johannesburg. From 1995 to 1997, he worked on the econometric software project, Working with Microfit, at the Cambridge University as hands-on session supervisions.
Shin has served as Reader from 2000 to 2004 and a Lecturer at the Department of Economics, University of Edinburgh from 1998 to 2000. He was a Professor at the Economics Division at the University of Leeds from 2004 to 2011.
