Congratulations to three academics in the UCL Department of Economics

The Stone Centre at UCL will continue supporting research by academics from the UCL Department of Economics

Building on the success of last year's scheme, the Stone Centre at UCL offered internal research support grants to academics from the UCL Department of Economics.

For the second year in a row, we'll support work by colleagues in the Department:

  • Lucas Conwell, Lecturer in Economics: Informal institutions, infrastructure, and urbanization,
  • Stephen Hansen, Professor of Economics: High frequency data for heterogeneity in macro,
  • Attila Lindner, Professor of Economics: Transactional preferences, public policies and the minimum wage.

Stephen's grant will also support the research of Filippo Pallotti, who has recently been appointed Stone PhD Scholar and is a PhD Student in the Department.

Their work will contribute to fulfilling the mission of the Stone Centre to advance research on the causes and consequences of wealth concentration and inequality. Lucas, Attila, and Stephen join the current holders of an internal research support grant:

  • Michela Tincani, Associate Professor of Economics: The role of self-stereotypes in perpetuating educational inequalities,
  • Marcos Vera-Hernández, Professor of Economics: Identifying barriers in university admissions of students with excellent academic results,
  • Kirill Borusyak, formerly Assistant Professor of Economics at UCL: The distributional effects of trade: Theory and evidence,
  • Joao Granja, Assistant Professor of Economics: Reaching underserved areas through subsidy auctions.

Not at UCL? Not a problem! During the 2024/2025 academic year, we'll run an open call for research support grants for academics at any other higher education institution.

Warmest congratulations to the awardees, and welcome to the Stone Centre!
