Dr. Yin's research focuses on social security aging and disability policies in the United States and Europe. Her research includes understanding effects of existing programs on individuals’ behavior and well-being, and utilizing dynamic structural models to simulate behavioral effects and fiscal effects of possible policy reforms. She also studies measurement of work limitation in a cross-country setting. In one of her current projects, she and her colleague apply an anchoring vignette approach to correct for reporting scale heterogeneity in self-reported disability measures within a country and between countries. Her research has been supported by grants from the Social Security Administration through Boston College Center for Retirement Research and Michigan Retirement Research Center. Dr. Yin serves as a Faculty Associate of the CUNY Institute for Demographic Research (CIDR). She teaches courses in the economic analysis of public policy, economic demography, demography of aging, and research methods.

She holds a Ph.D. in Economics from the State University of New York at Stony Brook.
