New faces in August
This August The Choice Lab is fortunate to have four visitors.
Teodora Boneva, University College London
Teodora Boneva is a British Academy Post-doctoral Fellow at the University College London (UCL). Her research interests include human capital formation, labour, consumption and socio-economic inequality. Her current research focuses on the evolution of preferences and skills in childhood, the role of feedback in the skill accumulation process and the role of beliefs in educational investment decisions. During her visit at the Choice Lab, she will be working on a project that investigates the role of beliefs about the pecuniary and non-pecuniary returns to education in students' decisions to attend university.
Stefania Bortolotti, University of Cologne
Stefania Bortolotti is a visiting post doc from University of Cologne. Her research interests are in the field of experimental and behavioral economics, with a focus on fairness views in unequal societies and cross-cultural cooperation. During her stay, Stefania will mostly work on two experimental projects: one on blind rage and the other on fairness views under the shadow of cheating.
Johanna Croton, University of Bern
Johanna Croton has a bachelor's degree in Business Administration from University of Bern. Her main research interests within behavioral economics include human judgement and decision making, interventions regarding social inequality, environmental issues and gender differences, as well as the effect of social norms on behavior. During a recent internship at Carnegie Mellon University (CBDR) she worked as a research assistant on various projects exploring intertemporal choice, risk aversion in choice bracketing, and tax and realization effects.
She will work to develop her practical skills related to experimental design, study execution and data analysis, with the further goal of developing ideas and initiating research projects in my future studies as a trainee at The Choice Lab.
Chiara Coriele, University of Verona
Chiara Coriele is a PhD student at the Department of Economics of the University of Verona, Italy. Her main interest is Behavioral Economics. Her research has focused on the gap between objective and subjective status and the particular role of the personality traits and loss aversion, risk attitude and intertemporal choice involving children at the primary school and with a focus on the difference between self-other decision making.
At The Choice Lab she will design a lab experiment regarding fairness and morality, in particular what drives people to behave in a moral way and the relative importance of intrinsic and extrinsic motivations.
