Nuo Jin (Daniel) is currently a PhD in Economics candidate at Cardiff Business School. His PhD research topic is measuring impacts of Brexit on migration and regional economic growth in Wales, co-funded by Cardiff Business School studentship and Welsh Economic Research Unit. He has participated in multiple academic and professional projects at Cardiff University, Ipsos, and Arup with focus on various topics from sustainable transportation in Wales to economic recovery during the post-pandemic era.

Prior to joining Cardiff University, he was a full-time research assistant at China Europe International Business School. He holds an MSc in Economics degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (2017-2019) and a BSc in Business degree from South China University of Technology (2013-2017). 

He is an active member of Regional Studies Association and National Institute of Economic and Social Research. 





His current research focuses on how Brexit will impact migration from rest of the world (especially EU region) to Wales and how such impact will lead to different responses from different regional economic sectors in Wales.

Brexit is one of the most significant (and controversial) socioeconomic issues in UK since 2016 and will continue to be a spotlight for economists amid external shocks such as Covid-19 pandemic and Russian invasion of Ukraine. The final agreement of Brexit mainly focuses on imposing additional restrictions on EU migration to UK, while Wales has one of the strongest economic and labour connections with EU region among all UK subregions, both of which contributed to the significance of conducting research on impacts of Brexit on migration in Wales and Welsh economy.
