Very glad that my TED talk was so well received! Thanks so much to the audience for being so enthusiastic and lively, it was a very enjoyable experience :-)
Among the numerous questions that I got after the talk, there was a lot of inquiries as to whether I advise regulators and companies, using the insights from my research.
The answer is YES, but in a very special way. My role is limited to an academic one: I focus on my research and on communicating my findings as well as I can, which occupies 100% of my time, so no time for consulting. But it turns out I have a second brain—and a Spock-style one :-) : My husband is a behavioral scientist consulting with a wide range of organizations.
He’s been helping me a lot design my experiments and think about the implications of my research. In his advice to his clients worldwide, he has been transforming the insights from my experimental findings into actionable knowledge.
So if you want to work into applying my research into the financial industry, as there has been a lot of interest for that lately, you should contact him directly: firstname.lastname@example.org
I’m delighted to be scheduled to present at the Princeton & Columbia seminars in February 2016. I will take advantage of the trip to spend a couple of weeks in the US. Please let me know if you would be interested in meeting with me at that time!
Very excited to learn that Mike Woodford and Andrew Caplin selected my after-effects paper coauthored with Lionnel Pradier and Talis Putnins for the session they are chairing at the NBER Summer Institute 2015 EFG research group workshop on Behavioral Macro in Boston. Looking forward to the discussions!
Update: Unfortunately, I’ve had to cancel all travel due to health issues, so I won’t be attending the session in Boston this year. Please do get in touch if you’d like to discuss the paper though.
UPDATE: I had to postpone this visit to this Tuesday December 6th. Everything below still applies. I will be in New York until Monday December 12th early afternoon, so please feel free to contact me if you want to meet.
I am thrilled to have been invited to present my current research at the Neuroeconomics seminar of NYU’s Center for Neuroeconomics. I will thus be in New York around April 26th, and I would like to take advantage of this trip to meet with interested persons in the extended NY area.
So please feel free to contact me if you would like to meet during that week. I will strive to accommodate everyone interested. Many thanks!
UNSW is co-organizing with the University of Sydney the 5th Australia-New Zealand Workshop on Experimental Economics on Nov 26-28. I will be presenting my ongoing research and I am looking forward to interacting with my colleagues in Economics.
If you are attending the workshop and would like to discuss with me, please send me an email or just come and meet me during the conference :-)
The Neuroscience Fundamentals course at UNSW seems to be a very good course for any finance student willing to explore Neurofinance as a research area. I would encourage all students to look at this opportunity to build an intro background in neuroscience, as the intersection of neuroscience and finance is a very promising field.
If you‘re thinking of exploring this area, I‘ll be glad to see you to discuss this: please email me to get an appointment. Below is the abstract of the course:
This course is a cross-Faculty offering that will address six big questions in modern neuroscience. A new question will be explored each fortnight in lectures, a laboratory class and tutorial. The focus of the course is on the range of disciplines that contribute to the field of neuroscience, and each fortnight’s topic will be taught by academics from two or more disciplines using an integrated approach. Students will develop an insight into how problems in neuroscience are investigated and an appreciation of some current issues. The course is a compulsory part of the Neuroscience study plan in Advanced Science (NEURA13972) but is open to other students. Although there are no fixed pre-requisites, students are advised that the following courses will provide a useful background: ANAT2511 BIOC2101 PHPH2101 PSYC2081.
I will be spending a week in the US shortly:
- Oct 11-14 in Caltech
- Oct 15-17 in Evanston for the 2010 Society for Neuroeconomics Conference
Caltech will be my usual stop on my way to Chicago. I still have a few slots available while there, and I would be very happy to meet with anyone interested in the LA area (Pasadena being the easiest for me of course).
I am looking forward to meeting again with a lot of colleagues in Evanston. The program is already quite busy, but please do send me an email if you want to meet, I’ll be more than happy to. I will be presenting my latest neurofinance results the Sunday.
This will be my first US trip since my relocation to Sydney this September, and I have to say I’m thrilled that Caltech is a direct trip – Chicago is not so direct to come back from ;-)
