National Chengchi University
Shu-Heng Chen is recognized as one of the founders and leaders in the field of agent-based computational economics and the first to introduce genetic programming into agent-based computational economics. He takes a biologically-inspired approach in modeling the boundedly rational behavior of agents; on this regard, he stands in a position of carrying on the legacy of Alfred Marshall and Herbert Simon. Currently, he is a Distinguished Professor in the Department of Economics, Dean of Office of International Cooperation, Director of the AI-ECON Research Center, and the organizer of Experimental Economics Laboratory at National Chengchi University. Under his leadership, AI-ECON Research Center is internationally acknowledged via the invention of the Taiwan Model—an agent-based artificial stock model. In recent years, he further leads the Center to conduct researches that incorporate agent-based computational economics, behavioral economics, and experimental economics.
Shu-Heng Chen also serves as the editor-in-chief of the Journal of New Mathematics and Natural Computation (World Scientific) and the Journal of Economic Interaction and Coordination (Springer), as well as the associate editor of the Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization (Elsevier). He has more than 150 publications in international journals and edited book volumes. Over the last decades, he served as a keynote speaker at more than a score of international conferences.
