Industrial Organization, Microeconometrics, Applied Microeconomics


Shengnan FangI am a doctoral candidate in Economics at Kansas State University. I expect to graduate in May 2019. My research interests lie in the fields of Industrial Organization, Microeconometrics, and Applied Microeconomics.

I have 6 years collegiate teaching experience. As primary instructor in Kansas State University, I have independently taught Principles of Macroeconomics, Intermediate Macroeconomics, and Intermediate Microeconomics on both campus and online sections.

Before joined the Ph.D. Program, I worked as a full-time lecturer for 2 years at Peizheng College in China, where I taught Principles of Microeconomics, International Economics, and Financial Derivatives. In addition to formal teaching, I also served on thesis committees for undergraduate students at Peizheng College. I also have worked for 4 years as the Deputy Director and Economist in the Budget Department of Finance Bureau of Dongshan County (China).

My research concerns the market power and price strategies of differentiated products in dairy industry. In my dissertation, I analyze the competitive conducts in dairy industry and address the question of how the quantity of media coverage on organic dairy issues influences the organic price premium for milk.

I will be available for interviews in January’s ASSA/AEA meetings in Atlanta, GA
