Recent PhD Anukriti wins Econometric Society Award

Professor Anukriti, who recently completed her PhD in Economics at Columbia, received one of two inaugural awards from the European Meeting of the Econometric Society (ESEM).  The Econometric Society is the profession's most prestigious international association.  These awards are for the two best papers in applied economics, which broadly taken include applied theory, empirical economics, experimental economics, and computational economics.  They are given to young researchers within ten years of obtaining their PhD. Professor Anukriti's paper "The Fertility-Sex Ratio Trade--off: Unintended Consequences of Financial Incentives" was highly rated by the Program Committee for the Society's European Meeting that was held August 26th to 30th in Gothenberg, Sweden.  Professor Anukriti joined Boston College's Department of Economics this summer after receiving her PhD from Columbia University.
