Asst Prof He Tai-Sen

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 work focuses on how simple, easy-to-manipulate linguistic interventions influence people’s economic decision-making. I normally teach Experimental Economics and Financial Economics.
