Complex Systems Summer School 2014

I am currently enrolled at my third year of the Ph.D. in Economic Theory and Institutions at the University of Rome Tor Vergata. I am also a visiting scholar at the PPE (philosphy, Politics and Economics) programme of the University of Pennsylavania. My research focuses on motivation and beliefs in decision making, agency and development, institutions, political economy. I am currently studying how motivations and identity based beliefs trigger decision making and shape responses to public policy oriented to development; specifically educational choice and social mobility trends. I am also working on reinforcement learning model to better understand how identity traits become salient and shape people's aspirations and behavior. wesbite
