Tonight we have three speakers, in no particular order:
Caroline Vass, Health Economics:
I am currently trying to finish my PhD in Health Economics at the University of Manchester. I was awarded a studentship to investigate women’s preferences for breast screening programmes. The research involves understanding how women balance the risks and benefits, and whether this changes when risk is framed differently. Aside from people’s risk preferences, I really like travelling and I’ve just got back from Somalia!
Cheng Luo, MBS:
Cheng Luo is a PhD student in Manchester Business School. Her research aims to develop a data mining model for segmenting consumers based on their promotion proneness and variety seeking tendency and to find out how consumers’ purchase behaviours evolve in their purchase life cycles.
Daniel Elphick, Musicology:
Daniel Elphick is a third year PhD student and GTA in Musicology, writing on Weinberg’s string quartets. His research interests include Russian/Soviet music, music of the twentieth-century, music aesthetics and analysis, and critical theory. When not writing about obscure music, Daniel enjoys playing piano, reading, and being mauled by a cat called Martha.
