Economics PhD in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences

November 30, 2020

Born and raised in Sai Gon, Vietnam,  I am a second-year Ph.D. student in economics at SFU. After completing my Bachelor's degree in Economics at Singapore (SIM) and California (UCSD), I joined SFU in 2018 to pursue graduate training in Economics.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO COME TO SFU?

I choose SFU Economics because of the world-class faculty and the rigorousness of the program, making it one of the world's top graduate econ schools.

TELL US ABOUT YOUR RESEARCH AND/OR PROGRAM.

I enjoy exploring individuals' behavior interaction in both computational and experimental environments. I like to incorporate realistic human behaviors into economic modeling, as I believe economic activities are not entirely created by rational decision-makers but there is an interference of cognitive dissonance. My research applications include the central bank's monetary policy.

WHAT ARE YOU PARTICULARLY ENJOYING ABOUT YOUR STUDIES/RESEARCH AT SFU?

The learning and researching environment at SFU (especially the Burnaby mountain campus) is lovely, diverse and vibrant.
