Dr Hanoch is now an Associate Professor of Risk Management at SBS.

Dr Chung-Ching Tai completed his PhD in Economics at the National Chengchi University in Taiwan, and his research focuses on behavioural economics, experimental auctions, neuro-economics, agent-based simulations and prediction markets. His research has been published in leading international peer-reviewed journals such as European Journal of Operational Research, International Journal of Forecasting, and The Journal of Behavioral Finance & Economics. Dr Tai is now an Associate Professor in Decision Analytics and Risk at SBS.

In response to becoming a member of the CRR, Yaniv Hanoch said “I am extremely pleased to join the CRR and to forge new collaborations. This is a great opportunity to be part of a multi-disciplinary team that investigates a wide range of risk-related topics using state of the art techniques and models. Being a CRR member will help to extend my research into novel areas and enable me to tackle new research questions.” Chung-Ching Tai echoed Yaniv’s comments by adding “I am very excited to join the CRR, a truly multi-disciplinary team. I envision developing new research partnerships on many intriguing topics with the other CRR members!” The Director of the CRR, Dr Ian Dawson, said “I am delighted that both Yaniv and Chung-Ching have joined the CRR. They both bring an extensive range of new skills and knowledge to the Centre and I know that the other CRR members are looking forward to collaborating with them in the near future. Yaniv and Chung-Ching will certainly help to further extend the capacity of the CRR to conduct world-leading research in the fields of risk and decision making.”
