Wanling Su

Wanling Su is a behavioral law and economics scholar and Fellow at Harvard Law School.

She received her law degree from Yale Law School and neuroscience degree from Mount Holyoke College. Her first article—What Is Just Compensation?—appeared in the Virginia Law Review. Her more recent research has been featured in Bloomberg, The Wall Street Journal, TaxProf, and Columbia Law School Blue Sky.

Drawing from the behavioral economics literature, her research deepens our understanding of how corporate executives, corporate boards, and juries make financial decisions under uncertainty as well as how tax complexity shapes those decisions.

Her scholarship is informed by her experience with ICM, a venture capital backed financial technology firm that helps democratize capital markets by integrating liquidity solutions with SEC-registered securities, and Promontory Financial, where she advised financial services clients on regulatory and governance matters.

She has taught at Yale University and the University of Virginia.
