Dr. Yifei Wang is an Assistant Professor of Decision Science at University of New Hampshire, Paul College of Business and Economics.
Dr. Wang's research is characterized by its multidisciplinary approach, drawing from the fields of economics, social science, and technology studies. Her primary research agenda centers around the profound impact of technology platforms on traditionally marginalized groups. She is particularly dedicated to unraveling the complex dynamics of gender and race diversity within technology-driven environments. Her work delves into the IT labor market and creative labor domain, examining how these digital landscapes influence economic opportunities and outcomes for underrepresented individuals. She employs a diverse array of research methods, including advanced econometrics, field and lab experiments, and machine learning techniques.
Beyond her primary research focus, Dr. Wang is actively engaged in two additional domains of academic inquiry: 1) human capital management within the online labor market, shedding light on the evolving nature of work in a digital age. 2) the behavioral impact of social media platforms, a vital area of study in an increasingly connected world.
Dr. Wang's work have been recognized at prestigious conferences, including the International Conference of Information Systems (ICIS), Workshop on Information Systems and Economics (WISE), Conference on Information Systems and Technology (CIST), INFORMS, and the Academy of Management (AOM) within the divisions of Communication, Digital Technology, and Organization (CTO) and Technology and Innovation Management (TIM). She servers as reviewer for top-tier journals, such as Management Science, Management Information Systems Quarterly (MISQ), and Production and Operations Management (POM).
