Dr Yuan Wang

Senior Lecturer in Economics


I joined Sheffield Hallam University in January 2019. Before that, I worked in a few universities (University of Manchester, UCL and University of Southampton) teaching economics to both undergraduate and postgraduate students. My journey of teaching economics to business school students started in January 2017 at Aston University.

My philosophy of teaching is to make economics subject interesting to my students. I believe that my students can perform their best if they could enjoy the learning process. My research is mostly concentrated on theoretical Macroeconomics and Applied Econometrics. I am happy to accept PhD students in relevant fields.
