Year: 2020

Center: Business

Yufang “Sabrina” Sun grew up in Dalian, a harbor city on the Chinese East Coast. Before starting at GESS, she studied in the business bachelor and MMM programs at the University of Mannheim. Prior to that, she obtained bachelor’s degrees in psychology and mathematics from Indiana University Bloomington, and worked as a full time research fellow at Harvard University investigating the social psychological underpinnings of institutional corruption. While writing her master thesis at the Chair of Financial Markets and Financial Institutions at Mannheim, Yufang became fascinated with the role of social preferences in economic behaviors, a line of research she plans to pursue during her doctoral study. She would also like to apply theories and methods from other social sciences, in particular social psychology theories and experimental methods, to the study of economic and financial decision making. Aside from her academic endeavor, Yufang is passionate about creating fusion cuisine and introducing children to Chinese language and culture.
