Joseph Tao-yi Wang  About Me:

I am currently 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 Publons, 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 (working paper; 1st ed: Pupil Dilation and Eyetracking). 

Try also Handbook of Experimental Results and Neuroeconomics: Decision Making and the Brain.

  Finally, Taiwan Social Sciences Experimental Laboratory (TASSEL) was involved in these research, and hosted 2017 APESA (Asian-Pacific ESA Conference), Feb. 16-18, 2017. (ESA link)

For NTU undergrads (double-)majoring in economics: BESAP, an Exchange Program with the Department of Economics, UC-Berkeley.

For Taipei HSS students: 9/8 handout (slides), Economics in the News and 9/15 handout, Visible Hand Experiment (with guide and past results). Background reading: Comics and my chapter

What is Economics?  Introductory slides for the Chinese book 一切都是誘因的問題.  (Handout) 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) (old; 舊版).

What's New:

[ 3 /26/2022] New! My slides on Economics is All About Institutions and Human Behavior (經濟學就是上有政策下有對策) (old), Deliberative Democracy Meeting on Learning Path Files (學習歷程檔案審議) and Flipping the EMI Classroom (用影片與課堂實驗來顛覆全英教室).

[10/29/2021] New! NTU Econ is offering a series of high school mini-courses (高中微課程).  Also, anyone can take the NTU AP test for Principles of Microeconomics regardless of taking the mini-course or not.

[ 8 /10/2020] Classroom experimental data/code of Lin et al. (2020) available on OSF.  Also on OSF is Cheap talk experimental data of Cai and Wang (2006).

[12/16/2019] I hosted mini-course in Epistemic Game Theory with Tai-Wei Hu (12/16-20), mini-course in Eyetracking HMM with Janet H. Hsiao and Antoni B. Chan (8/12-16) and Peter G. Moffatt's mini-course in experimetrics (4/9-12).
