University of Singapore

Dr. Chong Juin Kuan obtained his B.Sc. (First Class Honors) from the University of Canterbury and his Ph.D. in Management from the Anderson School at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). He is currently an Associate Professor of Marketing at the NUS Business School in National University of Singapore. He was previously an Associate Professor of Marketing at the SKK Graduate School of Business in Seoul funded by Samsung Corporation. His research interest centers on decision making in both choice and strategic contexts. In the choice context, he works on issues concerning the role of risk and information in choice decision making. He uses behavioral and economic principles to drive his models and uses both field data (such as click-stream and scanner panel data) and experimental data to validate his models. His models are useful for understanding the choice behavior in fast moving consumer goods, technology products, consumer durables, internet retail and services. In particular, he had proposed a category assortment planning model to manage product variety in fast moving consumer goods to substantially reduce lost sales. In the strategic context, he uses behavioral principles to explain strategic behaviors that differ significantly from behaviors predicted by equilibrium concepts (such as Nash equilibrium). His models were extended to study product and price competition, and strategic interactions within a supplychain. The research works of Dr. Chong were published in Journal of Marketing Research, Manufacturing and Service Operation Management, American Economic Review, Quarterly Journal of Economics, Journal of Economic Theory, Games and Economic Behavior and European Journal of Operations Research. His research has appeared in conferences such as the 2001 Nobel Symposium, INFORMS conference and Marketing Science conference.
