Dr Tuck Cheong Tang, from the Department of Economics, has been awarded the 2012 Mollie Holman Doctoral Medal for the Faculty of Business and Economics. The Mollie Holman Doctoral Medal is awarded to the Doctoral candidate in each faculty of Monash University judged to have presented the best dissertation of the year. Dr. Tang’s thesis was supervised by Professor Dietrich Fausten from the Department of Economics.
Dr Tang’s thesis, which was on import demand in Japan, received outstanding examiners’ reports and has already led to several publications. Dr. Tang, who is a Senior Lecturer in Economics at Monash's Sunway campus, has been a prolific publisher throughout his candidature. This combined output has had a substantial impact, reflected in a growing citation count and emerging reputation among economists in Malaysia.
