Joseph Tao-yi Wang  About Me:

I am currently Department Chair and Distinguished Professor at
Department of Economics, National Taiwan University.

  I was Associate and Assistant Professor at the same department, and 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.

  About My research:

See my CV, or profiles on WoS author, ORCID, and Google Scholar Citations. 

  See (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 handbook chapter on Investigating Pupil Dilation in Decision Research (wp; 1st ed) and Neuroeconomics.

  Finally, Taiwan Social Sciences Experimental Laboratory (TASSEL) was involved in these research, and hosted 2017 APESA. (ESA link)

For NTU undergrads Econ majors: BESAP, an Exchange Program with Berkeley-Economics.

For high school students: mini-courses (高中微課程), What is Economics (經濟學就是上有政策下有對策), Market Design (市場設計) and Supply-Demand with Visible Hand Experiment (with guide and past results). See also the Price vs. Quality Market.  Background reading: Comics and my chapter

What is Economics?  Economics is about institutions and human behavior (經濟學就是上有政策下有對策). Some thoughts from myself and others grouped as Econ543 (經濟五四三).

Experimental Teaching: My take on Flipping the EMI Classroom (用影片與課堂實驗來顛覆全英教室) with Signal/Screen+PGG demo or LUPI demo (all; GIS; 舊版).

What's New:

[ 4 /26/2024] My slides on What is Economics (經濟學就是上有政策下有對策), Market Design (市場設計), and Learning Path Files (學習歷程檔案審議).  Note that everyone can take NTU's AP test for Principles of Microeconomics.

[ 4 / 2 /2024] New Mini-course on Multi-Agent Contracting (Eyal Winter).  Past Mini-courses include: Epistemic Game Theory (Tai-Wei Hu), Eyetracking HMM (Janet H. Hsiao and Antoni B. Chan), Experimetrics (Peter G. Moffatt) and AP (高中微課程).  

[ 3 /28/2023] NTU now has university-wide site license for Qualtrics.  SSO sign-in (via NTU email) at TASSEL-Qualtrics.
