Claire S.H. Lim
Claire S.H. Lim was a 2016-2017 W. Glenn Campbell and Rita Ricardo-Campbell National Fellow.
Her primary interest lies in empirical research in political economy. Her research investigates how characteristics of political environments and the design of government institutions interact with the behavior of public officials, the conduct of regulated industries, and social welfare. She has conducted such investigations in three contexts: the behavior of judges in U.S. state courts, regulation of the U.S. energy industry, and government subsidies in the U.S. health care system.
In her current research, she analyzes the Medicaid Disproportionate Share Hospital program, which is a form of government subsidy and Medicaid reimbursement to hospitals that treat a large number of Medicaid and uninsured patients.
She received her Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania. She was an assistant professor at the Graduate School of Business at Stanford and a fellow at the Woodrow Wilson School at Princeton. She is currently on the faculty of the economics department at Cornell.
