Welcome to my research page.

My main research fields are international trade and economic development, with a focus on firm investment and trade participation decisions across space and the resulting welfare impacts. My job market paper investigates the welfare implication of the US-China trade war in Vietnam when foreign-owned manufacturers repatriate their profits.

I will join Institute of Economics, Academia Sinica as an Assistant Research Fellow in Fall 2025 after one year as a Postdoctoral Fellow at Department of Economics, University of Nottingham.

Here is my CV. You can contact me via sungju.wu[at]
