Professor McElroy focuses her research on the subjects of labor, demand systems, and financial economics.

She is also currently investigating altruism in marriage markets and bargaining on the core in marriage markets.

Yang on, “Carrots and Sticks: Fertility Effects on China’s Population Policies.” She has collaborated with her contemporaries on several projects, including her earlier work with Hwei-ju Chen, R. Gnanadesikan, and J.R. Kettenring entitled, “A Statistical Study of Groupings of Corporations,” and her project with T.J.
