Francesca Bastianello’s research interests lie at the intersection of finance, macroeconomics, and behavioral economics. In her research she builds on insights from behavioral economics to develop tractable models of non-rational beliefs, and studies their aggregate financial and macroeconomic implications.
Bastianello earned a Ph.D. in Business Economics from Harvard University, and also holds an M.Phil. in Economic Research and a B.A. in Economics from the University of Cambridge, Trinity College.
