Chih-Sheng Hsieh

Assistant Professor of Economics at Chinese University of Hong Kong

Chih-Sheng Hsieh received a PhD in Economics from Ohio State University in 2013. His research interests span over labor economics, health economics, and social networks. In particular, he works on endogenous selection issues inherited in social interaction studies. Besides, he studies empirical network formation. He develops an empirical network formation model to accommodate various important features from observed network data, such as homophily in characteristics, behaviors, as well as link dependence. He applies the model to study formation of students' friendship networks, firms' R&D networks, and scientific co-author networks. His research has been published in Journal of Applied Econometrics, Regional Science and Urban Economics, Quantitative Economics, and others.
