Quang Nguyen, PhD
I have been teaching the following courses and modules: Behavioural economics, Managerial economics, Management analytics
Most of my works focus on applying insights from behavioral economics to explore factors affecting individual's and and firm’s behavior. For example, conducting a field experiment I study the role of loss aversion in consumer’s overspending behavior. In another study, I investigate the link between leading-by-example in honesty and organizational culture of integrity.
Another experimental method that I have been using is randomized controlled trial (RCT). Several of my studies incorporate insights from psychology and economics to design interventions - aiming at improving consumer’s satisfactions, coporate culture, and firm performance.
My work has been published in leading academic journals such as the American Economic Review.
