Joseph Tao-yi Wang  Welcome to Joseph Tao-yi Wang's homepage. 

  I am a Professor at the Department of Economics, National Taiwan University.

  I was an Associate and Assistant Professor at the Department of Economics, National Taiwan University,

  and a Postdoctoral Scholar in Economics and Visiting Associate in Economics at the Division of Humanities and Social Sciences, Caltech.

  I received my PhD from Department of Economics, UCLA.

Curious about what I do in research?  Read (listed from broad to specific): 實驗經濟學簡介, 神經經濟學簡介 (Thanks to 張柏瑋老師 and his friend for a correction), and Pupil Dilation and Eyetracking. 

Try also the Handbook of Experimental Results and Neuroeconomics: Decision Making and the Brain, available via NTU Library e-Resources.

For more information, please see my CV or my Google Scholar Citations.

If you are an NTU undergrad majoring (or double-majoring) in economics, you might want to consider: BESAP, an Exchange Program with the Department of Economics, UC-Berkeley.
