We would like to welcome Emma Heikensten, who will be a visiting CESS from August to December. While visiting us, Emma will continue to develop her research on gender differences in advice, strategic interaction and awards.
Emma holds an M.Sc. degree from London School of Economics and Political Science and a B.S. degree from Lund University School of Economics and Management. She is also a doctoral candidate in Economics, a Fellow at the Women and Public Policy Program, at Harvard University and a Fellow at the Center for Experimental Social Science at NYU. Her research interests are in behavioral and experimental economics with a focus on the economics of gender and inequality. More specifically, she concentrates on gender differences in advice seeking, on strategic interaction and on motivational effects of different degrees on publicness of non-monetary awards. She is also a part of several projects on replication and prediction markets, in which Emma has replicated experimental papers in psychology and behavioral economics.
