North Hall 1110


Kenneth Chan, University of California, Santa Barbara


Kenneth is a PhD candidate studying Economics at UCSB. Prior to joining UCSB, he received a Bachelor of Social Sciences in Economics from the National University of Singapore in 2020. Kenneth's research interests lie within the realms of Behavioral and Experimental Economics. His current projects study how people incorporate new information into their beliefs, contributing to our understanding of people's decision-making processes under uncertainty. 

In addition to his academic pursuits, Kenneth has a strong interest in contract bridge, a partnership-based game involving decision-making under conditions of uncertainty. He has represented Singapore in bridge and even engaged in semi-professional play. This game sparked his inspiration to pursue a Ph.D. in economics to study human behavior and decision-making processes.
