Shinn-Shyr Wang is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Economics at National Chengchi University (NCCU). His current research interests include industrial organization, entrepreneurial economics, and applied microeconomics.

Wang has experiences with empirical models of product differentiation at the firm level. He investigates the different markups that arise in the presence of different competition models such as Bertrand, collusion, mergers and price leadership. He also works on price transmission along the vertical supply chain in the retail industry with extensive numerical simulations.

In the project of entrepreneurial economics, Wang and his colleagues explore whether and how the educational network and political link can bridge the information dissemination and ease the barrier of crucial information flow between venture capitalists and start-up teams through a unique dataset collected and maintained by the Center for Economic Policy Research at NCCU. In addition, he is also part of a research team led by Professor Ping Wang (Washington University in St. Louis) and Professor Chang-Tai Hsieh (University of Chicago) where the theme is on the relationship of industrial dynamics and economic development.
