I am pleased to say that I will be participating at the 2015 version of WESSI. Looking forward for both the workshop and meeting such an interesting group of young experimentalists in various social sciences.
The website describes it as "The Institute is designed to provide training for social science graduate students and junior faculty in experimental methods, broadly defined. The institute will provide training in lab, field, lab-in-the-field, and survey experimental methodology and cover a broad range of substantive topics in the social sciences drawn from economics, political science, and sociology. Practical training for lab-in-the-field experimentation will be provided."
I will be presenting my research of information effects regarding inequality of opportunities to a mixed audience of academics and policy makers. I am thrilled to be in Chicago and I hope I will learn much about the questions that policy makers have these days with respect to Philanthropy.
This coming 18th I will be presenting the final results of my experiment on the Information Effect Regarding Inequality of Opportunities on Redistribution. Last year I presented the design and some preliminary results. This year I am presenting the final results after running all sessions and what new promising questions were made through this process. I wish to get a lot of comments.
I will be presenting for the first time my paper on the effects of segregation in individual beliefs regarding income determining factors. This is an audience different to the one I am used to. Looking forward for comments coming from a different perspective.
Being selected as one of the world-wide group of 480 young researchers attending the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings is one of the most exiting moments so far in my academic career. Having the chance to meet 18 Laureates in the Economics Science and all the other young participants is something I am really looking forward to do.
