My name is Sang-Yong Oh and I am from South Korea. I have a Ph.D. degree in Economics from University at Buffalo, The State University of New York.
My main research area is Empirical Analysis on International Trade. One of my papers investigates the Vertical Specialization in East Asian Country, especially among China, Japan, and South Korea. In the paper, I focus on the industrial structure among those countries by using International Input-Output Table. Moreover, in order to have a better understanding of the relationship between the US and East Asian Economy, I introduced the data to the modified Hecksher-Ohlin-Vanek model.
Another paper investigates the incentives to merge in the online search engine industry in South Korea. I develop a two-sided market model to estimate the network externality in the market and to analyze the effect on the two-sided market structure.
In the process of my research, I have learned the theoretical and empirical literature in not only International Trade but Industrial Organization, especially about the relationship between the US and East Asian countries. I have been practicing various econometric skills while dealing with large datasets. To sum up, my research interests stays in International Trade, Empirical Industrial Organization, and Applied Microeconomics.
I have been teaching all of the core courses in Economics. Since 2006, I have worked extensively as a teaching assistant in the development of the exams of undergraduate courses at University at Buffalo. I have been teaching the Principle of Microeconomics, the Principle of Macroeconomics, Intermediate Microeconomics, Intermediate Macroeconomics, Econometrics, Business and Economics Math, and Business and Economics Statistics as well.
