Brief Bio:
Myong-Hun Chang studied Operations Research & Industrial Engineering as an undergraduate at Cornell University.  Upon graduating with a B.S. in 1984, he entered the graduate program in Economics at The Johns Hopkins University, earning a Ph.D. in 1988.  Since 1988, he has been teaching at Cleveland State University, where he is currently Professor of Economics.  He has also held visiting positions at The Johns Hopkins University and the Owen Graduate School of Management at Vanderbilt University.

His fields of research and teaching interest include Industrial Organization, Applied Game Theory, Computational Organization Theory, and Competitive Strategy.  His current research explores the non-equilibrium dynamics of learning and competition in complex social, economic, and organizational systems.  All of his research efforts employ game-theoretic and/or agent-based computational modeling techniques.

At Cleveland State University, he regularly teaches "Industrial Organization" and "Game Theory and the Social Sciences" at the undergraduate level and "Competition and Strategy" at the graduate level.
