Wenjie received Ph.D. in Economics from Kyoto University, Japan. Before joining NTU, he was an Assistant Professor at Graduate School of Social Sciences at Hiroshima University, Japan. He has taught Econometrics courses at undergraduate, master, and PhD levels. His research interests include Econometric Theory, Machine Learning, Applied Econometrics, Policy Evaluation, and Behavioral Economics. Recently, he is working on research topics such as high-dimensional instrumental variables (IV) models with possibly weak instruments, bootstrap-based cluster-robust inference for IV regressions and IV quantile regressions with few clusters, and spatial/network-dependence robust inference methods for high-dimensional IV models. His research papers have been published in academic journals such as the Journal of Econometrics (x4), European Economic Review, Singapore Economic Review, and Economics Letters.
