Gustavus Adolphus Student Recognized for Achievements at the Winchell Undergraduate Research Symposium

MINNEAPOLIS – ST. PAUL, Minn. (May 2, 2014) – Gustavus Adolphus College student Yue Yin was honored for her achievements at the Winchell Undergraduate Research Symposium. Yin received an Excellence in Science Award from the Minnesota Academy of Science in recognition of her contributions to the field of economics through undergraduate research. Zach May and Monica Johnson also participated in the symposium.

Yin, advised by Dr. Kristina Terkun-Castro, presented her project titled “Eurobonds and Its Application In the European Debt Crisis.” Eurobonds are bonds issued jointly by the 17 Euro countries’ governments to calm the Eurozone debt crisis. “This research paper is about the feasibility of Eurobonds,” Yin wrote in her abstract. Yin assessed the problems surrounding Eurobonds as a tool to promote financial reforms.
