Personal profile

Research Interests

Professor Keung's research focuses on household finance, public finance, and the macroeconomic implications of household consumption behavior. His recent work analyzes whether household behavior responds to news about future income tax changes; how household shopping behavior responds to anticipated sales tax changes; whether and how consumers spend large lump-sum payments; and how preferences form early in life. Prof. Kueng also studies how firms dynamically adjust to various changes in their environment, with a particular focus on the role of management practices.
