Fernando PlascenciaCornell University

I’m a recent Ph.D. Regional Science awarded at Cornell University in August 2017. One side of my research interest is peace and violence by using multiple methods (e.g., experiments, surveys) to generate knowledge that successfully informs practice and social policy. My concentration areas are in Health Economics, Behavioral Economics, and Social Networks.

My current research topics use Computational Social Science and Data Science to study complex social interactions and behavioral responses to crises (i.e primarily violence produced by Urban Warfare, Terrorism) to explore experimental measures of Subjective Well-Being, in addition, to measure risk perception and policy preferences. 

I am in the job market this year (2017-18) and will be available for interviews at the ASSA January 2018 meetings in Philadelphia.
