Dr. Xiupeng Wang is a Visiting Assistant Teaching Professor in the D'Amore-McKim School of Business at Northeastern University. Dr. Wang’s research primarily focuses on the impact of emerging technologies, particularly recent advances in information technologies, on firms and the labor market. His current research studies how Information Technology affects the organizational structures, firm sizes, and market concentration. His research also extends to cybersecurity to analyze firms’ human capital acquisition in response to data breaches. Through massive online experiments, Dr. Wang is developing a new measure of household production and finds the currently omitted non-market contribution to the GDP can potentially be greater than we believed before. He is also excited about using the matched employer-employee data from the U.S. Census Research Data Center. Dr. Wang received his Ph.D. in economics from the University of Connecticut and did postdoc research at MIT, Stanford University, and Boston University. He is a digital fellow at the Stanford Digital Economy Lab, and a senior research associate at the Harvard Labor and Worklife Program.
