Economics Society Invited Dr. Chankrajang for Talk - Bangkok Prep

Economics Society Invited Dr. Chankrajang for a Development Economics Talk

On the 29th of March, Economics Society invited a Chulalongkorn Professor to give a talk titled “Development Economics: From Growth Theory to Field Experiments”.

With the assistance from Mr. Kumar, Ms. Cantrill, and Ms. Court-Smith, we have brought together more than 25 students from KS4 and KS5 to attend the presentation delivered by the renowned professor, Dr. Thanyaporn Chankrajang.

As an Assistant Professor in Economics at Chulalongkorn University, she has investigated both contemporary and historical data and contexts to research the areas of development economics and economic history. She received her Ph.D. in Land Economy from the University of Cambridge in 2012. She holds a B.Sc. in Economics, M.Sc. in Economics, and Economics from the London School of Economics and Political Science.

Watching the students listening attentively to the talk, we have never been more excited for the students’ growing interest in the field of economics. From cross-country variations to the endogeneity problem in field experiments, Dr. Chankrajang’s lecture has truly inspired them to explore the subject beyond our IGCSE/A-Level specification.

Thank you everyone for your participation!

Bangkok Prep’s Economics Society is established by Raghav and Katie, two Year 13 students who intend to study Economics at university. Every Monday, members of the Economics Society meet together to discuss and learn about various economic topics that range from auction theory to stock markets.
