We will have the pleasure to listen to Siri Isaksson who will present "Shine a light (on the bright): Awards and the gender gap in knowledge contributions in STEM” (joint with Jana Gallus (UCLA) and Emma Heikensten (SEB)).
Siri Isaksson is an Assistant Professor (tenure track) in Behavioral Economics at the FAIR group at the Norwegian School of Economics. She recently got her PhD in Economics at the Stockholm School of Economics. She spent the last three years of her PhD program as a research fellow at Harvard University, first with the Econ CS group at Harvard SEAS, and then with the Women and Public Policy Program at Harvard Kennedy School.
Her primary research areas are experimental and behavioral economics. Specifically, she is interested in understanding how gender differences in everyday decision-making translate into unequal outcomes for men and women.
The Women and Science Chair at Université Paris Dauphine-PSL, created with the support of the L’Oréal Foundation, the Generali Foundation, La Poste, and the Talan Group, seeks to engage and foster interdisciplinary approaches to analyzing the causes and consequences of the underrepresentation of women in careers in scientific research and academia.
