Meet 2018-2019 Linde Institute Graduate Fellow Han Seo

Fifth-year social science PhD student Han Seo is interested in experimental economics and behavioral economics. While on his Linde Institute fellowship for the fall and winter terms of the 2018–2019 academic year, he is measuring the diversity of individual preferences with respect to how much they care about other people's well-being when making economic choices. He is also seeking to understand whether these preferences are carried across different experimental settings. His goal is to develop a theoretical model consistent with the experimental data that shows how spite and altruism could be
connected. Learn more about Seo’s research here.
