David Cesarini

Assistant Professor of Economics

I am an assistant professor in the Economics Department’s Center for Experimental Social Science. I am an empirically oriented economist with interests in applied microeconomics, as well as behavioral and experimental economics. To date, much of my work has used genetically informative datasets, often coupled with experimental methods, to answer questions about sources of individual differences in economic preferences, behaviors and outcomes. In recent work I have explored how molecular genetic data can be used to shed light on economic questions.
