Economics Department, Cornell University. Ithaca, USA

Dan Benjamin, from Cornell University in New York, US, works on behavioral economics (which incorporates ideas and methods from psychology into economic analysis) and genoeconomics (which incorporates genetic data into economics). Some current research topics include understanding errors people make in statistical reasoning; exploring how best to use survey measures of subjective well-being to evaluate policies; and identifying genetic variants associated with outcomes such as educational attainment and subjective well-being.

He has been invited by Arcadi Navarro (CRG).
