Seminars: Behavioral Economics & BEDR

Sponsored by: the Gatto Economic Research & Faculty Development Fund

Cornell has two complementary workshops that focus on the intersection of psychology and economics, and these workshops meet at the same time on alternate Tuesdays. The Behavioral Economics Workshop  focuses more on the economics side of behavioral research, whereas the BEDR (Behavioral Economics & Decision Research) Workshop focuses more on the psychology side of behavioral research.

Graduate students interested in Behavioral Economics research are encouraged to attend both.

Unless otherwise noted, both workshops meet on Tuesdays at 11:40 a.m. - 1:10 p.m. in TBA.
