Fernando Plascencia Cornell University


I am fifth year Ph.D. Regional Science student and a job market candidate at Cornell UniversityMy research interests are Health Economics, Behavioral Economics, and Social Networks.

My current research topics are based on Applied Economics. I am incorporating tools from Computational Social Science to study complex social interactions and behavioral responses to crises [i.e violence produced by Urban Warfare, Terrorism]. I am exploring experimental measures of Subjective Well-Being in locations affected by violence, in addition, to measure risk perception and policy preferences.
