I chose to apply to University of Southampton because I wanted to be a part of an inspiring research environment, at the very heart of leading risk and behavioural decision making research. The unique combination of excellent global reputation, distinguished academic staff with thorough expertise in various disciplines, and a large pool of empirical data sets for research makes the Centre for Risk Research an ideal place for a doctoral journey. I feel really lucky to be here.”

My primary background lies in control engineering where I developed a strong interest in estimation theory, stochastic signal processing, and control of stochastic systems. After more than fifteen years in the aerospace industry, I decided to broaden my management skills and I started MBA studies at the University of Durham.

Having greatly enjoyed studying decision making under uncertainty during my MBA studies, I was intrigued how financial and sports wagering markets can be used as proxy of human behaviour under the conditions of uncertainty. Consequently, I have joined Centre for Risk Research at the University of Southampton as a PhD student because of its world-class reputation in the domains of decision making and risk management research.

My PhD supervisors are Professor Ming-Chien Sung, Dr. Tiejun Ma, and Professor Johnnie Johnson.
