Bio/Research

In recent research, Victoria has studied the employment effects and optimal design of social insurance and assistance programs, including Unemployment Insurance, Social Security and Welfare benefits. She has also studied the effects of compensation schemes on productivity and other aspects of employee behavior. In further research projects that use data collected from a series of controlled laboratory experiments, Victoria's work shows how disappointment aversion affects how people behave in competitive situations and how boundedly-rational people learn in repeated strategic situations.
