Welcome! My name is Jessie Poon and I am a professor of economic geography at the University of Buffalo-SUNY (UB-SUNY).
My research interests broadly cover trade, foreign direct investment, energy, and finance. Much of my work is focused on Asia.
Before coming to UB-SUNY, I taught briefly at the University of Georgia and the National University of Singapore.
I am editor of Environment and Planning A, and serve on the editorial board of several journals.
I was Chair of Regional Studies Association and completed my term at the end of 2022.
