2024 Economics Teaching Fellow

Khulan Erdenedalai

Khulan Erdenedalai is a rising fourth-year undergraduate at Yale University from the Washington D.C. area, pursuing a double major in Economics and Urban Studies. She is passionate about the convergence of renewable energy, global politics, and urban development, and is eager to explore these topics through an economic lens using both qualitative and quantitative data analysis techniques. This interest was sparked during her childhood in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, where she observed significant climate change issues and urban infrastructure challenges, contrasting sharply with economic development in the United States. Khulan has experience conducting research in economic policy, voter behavior, and data analysis for institutions such as the University of Oxford, Yale School of Management, Virginia Tech University, and PBS NewsHour. She is looking forward to her upcoming role in the Education Data and Policy sector at the Urban Institute this summer.
