Fernando Plascencia Cornell University

I am Ph.D. Regional Science and a job market candidate at Cornell UniversityMy research interests are Health Economics, Behavioral Economics, and Social Networks. I am a Faculty First-Look Scholar 2017-18 at NYU Steinhardt

My current research topics are based on Applied Economics. I am incorporating tools from Computational Social Science and Data Science to study complex social interactions and behavioral responses to crises (i.e violence produced by Urban Warfare, Terrorism) to explore experimental measures of Subjective Well-Being in locations affected by violence, in addition, to measure risk perception and policy preferences. The idea behind using Data Science into Economics will advance knowledge in well-being analysis and provide experimental methods for public policies.

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