The Institute for Advanced Research in Humanities and Social Sciences collaborated with the Department and Graduate Institute of International Business to invite Economics Professor David Easley of Cornell University to give two lectures on special topics on May 24th.

David Easley is the Henry Scarborough Chair Professor of Social Sciences. He taught at California Institute of Technology (1985-86), the Cambridge University of England (1993-93), and was once an instructor at Northwestern University (1978-79). In the financial field, he worked with Maureen O’Hara to study market microstructure and asset evaluation. In the economics field, he devoted himself to the study of random-phase general equilibrium modeling.

In the areas of decision-making, he delves into decision-making models in complex environments. On the other hand, he spearheaded many large-scale projects at Cornell, which included the Social Science Task Force (1998) and the Solomon Interdisciplinary Social Science Program (2001-04). So far he has published more than 63 very influential articles and is considered to be a scholar of great significance in the field of social sciences. At NTU he will share the achievements of his research findings with Taiwanese scholars, interact with them, have mutual discussions and thereby promote academic exchange.
