Shu-Ling Wang


Dr. Richard W. Lindholm Professor of Public Finance and Assistant Professor in Economics and Management

I joined Gustavus Adolphus College in 2016, after my two-year stay at College of Wooster. I earned my Ph.D and M.A. degrees in Economics from Indiana University Bloomington in 2015. I also received an M.A. degree in Public Finance in 2008 and a dual B.A. degree in Public Finance & Law in 2006 from National Chengchi University, Taiwan.

My research focuses on Macroeconomics, Monetary Economics, and International Finance. I particularly study fiscal/monetary policy issues in a dynamic stochastic general equilibrium (DSGE) framework. In one of my projects, I analyze fiscal policy effects in highly-indebted countries with large interest rate spreads. Other projects include examining the distributional effects of non-resident housing investment on domestic agents in a New-Keynesian model, and computing optimal stabilization policy for countries belong to a monetary union. My papers are published in Journal of Macroeconomics, Review of International Economics, and Economic Modelling

My teaching interests lie in Macroeconomics, Money and Banking, International Finance, and First Term Seminar. Being an active instructor in an interactive liberal arts environment, I also enjoy mentoring undergraduate research and encourage students to think independently. During my two-year stay at College of Wooster, I advised several one-year long senior independent studies.

Beyond academia, I love architecture, arts, photography, and music. My favorite architects are Frank Lloyd Wright, Louis Sullivan, and Zaha Hadid; I am also fascinated by the drawings of Georgia O’Keeffe and Edward Hopper. I play piano, violin, and Pi-Pa (a Chinese instrument). My favorite composer and musician is Johann S. Bach of the Baroque period.
