Dr. Wu has been an associate professor at The Ohio State University. His research and teaching interests are in the areas of Applied Contract Theory and Incentive Systems, Applied Microeconomics, Experimental Economics, Regulation and Public Policy related to Agricultural Contracting. He earned his Ph.D. from the University of California Berkeley in Agricultural and Resource Economics in December 2001.

Much of his work centers around contract theory and applied contracting issues in agriculture. His current interests are in contract regulation and contract legislation in agriculture; the empirical testing of incentive systems; and the design of optimal pricing and incentive schemes for marketing, production, and supply contracting.

He is also interested in the study of informal incentives used by individuals and organizations to manage performance and regulate economic activity.
