Wentao’s research encompasses both theoretical and empirical aspects of Microeconomics. Wentao utilises mathematical models, particularly game-theoretical ones, to explore strategic information generation and sharing within and across organisations, along with the resultant economic and social consequences. Concurrently, Wentao engages in quantitative analysis to examine labour market outcomes and firms' (innovative) behaviours. Wentao is currently accepting applications from PhD students.
