ALBERTO  PRATI 

I am an Assistant Professor in Economics at UCL.
I also serve as a Research Fellow at the University of Oxford and as an Associate Researcher at the London School of Economics. 

I am a behavioural economist, working on:

 

  • wellbeing (Which social factors influence feelings of happiness and misery? How should we measure these feelings? And how can these measures help guide public policies?);
     

  • memory and beliefs (What role does memory play in the formation of beliefs? How beliefs and desires shape each other? Why do people disagree?);
     

  • sustainability (What can institutions do to fight climate change? When and why people sacrifice for the future? How can we measure it?)
