I am an assistant professor in the school of social sciences of Nanyang Technological University. I received Ph.D. in Economics from Brown University in 2013. I use experimental methods to study problems at the intersection of economics, finance, and psychology. My recent research focuses on two interdisciplinary areas: 1) how simple, easy-to-manipulate linguistic and acoustic interventions influence economic decision-making and 2) how parents can foster their children's development in economically important preferences (e.g., pro-sociality and patience) and life skills (e.g., strategic reasoning). I normally teach Experimental Economics and Financial Economics.
