Brittany Hosea-Small

Name: Eben Lazarus (he/him)

Discipline: Finance

Degrees: Ph.D., economics, Harvard, 2018; B.A., economics, University of Pennsylvania, 2011

Research interests: My research uses financial markets to answer questions about the fundamental structure of the economy. For example, why are risky asset prices so volatile, and what can we learn from this volatility about how people update their beliefs when they receive new information?

Fun fact: I love reading advice columns.
