Fernando Plascencia

Welcome to my academic website!

My current research focuses on Machine Learning and NLP (natural language processing) models to study behavioral responses to crises (i.e violence produced by Urban Warfare, Terrorism), and complex social interactions; by exploring experimental measures of subjective well-being, risk perception and policy preferences.

I received a PhD in Regional Science from Cornell University. My research applies concepts from Behavioral Economics and Network Theory to a broad set of topics . One side of my research interest is to measure decision making in violent scenarios by using multiple methods (e.g., experiments, surveys) to track well-being and evaluate policies.
