Tsu-ting Tim Lin

I am the Principal at Cambrio, leading prototyping and benchmarking efforts. At Cambrio, we bring powerful dataflow automation to problems where big, contextual, task-aligned datasets are a key enabler for analysis and tech capabilities. We work with industries such as geospatial, healthcare, and life sciences, where the amount of raw and unprocessed data is beyond the capability of a domain expert to analyze, connect across dimensions, and act on the results.

Previously, I was an assistant professor of Economics at Gettysburg College. My research focuses on the macroeconomic labor market, including the role of macroeconomic uncertainty on job creation and the reconciliation of the observed labor volatility with the search-and-matching model of unemployment. In addition, I have also examined how labor-replacing machines, or robots, may impact the economy at a business cycle frequency and how they may alter the conduct of monetary policy.
