In this research article, Putting a Price Tag on Others’ Perceptions of Us, Dr Zhang and his co-author, Associate Professor Yohanes Eko Riyanto from Nanyang Technological University, evaluate whether people care about the imputed judgment of anonymous individuals which arise from their perceptions. The research is done using the laboratory experimental method Variants of the Becker-DeGroot-Marschak mechanism were implemented to elicit the monetary value attached to the perceptions of participants. In one variant, only nonnegative bids were allowed, while only negative bids were allowed in another.
In addition to his administrative duties as the Head of Programme for University of London International Programmes and his teaching responsibilities for some EMFSS courses in economics and finance, Dr Zhang is also active in conducting scientific research in economics. He is particular interested in using laboratory and field experiments to understand economic behaviours. Students taught by Dr Zhang are often fascinated by his passion to bring experiments into classrooms to shed light on abstract economic theories and concepts.
