Study thyself - How economics is trying to fix its gender problem

10 January 2019

Anja Prummer's research on Gender and Collaboration (joint with Lorenzo Doctor and Sanjeev Goyal), is featured in this week’s edition of the Economist. Anja presented the work, establishing that women have smaller and more clustered networks of co-authors, which may reflect women's lower risk taking caused by a hostile environment towards women, at the meeting of the American Economic Association (AEA) in Atlanta on 4th January.
