Pamela Giustinelli is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Economics at Bocconi University. Dr. Giustinelli's primary interests lie in modeling and empirical analysis of decision making under Knightlian uncertainty, especially within-household decision making and interactions within the human capital domain (education, health, labor supply, long-term care). Pamela has also a strong interrelated interest in the areas of survey design and data collection, and aims with her research to analyze and develop methods to elicit decision processes and their components in formats that can be easily integrated in econometric models of individual and family decision making, thereby aiding structural policy-oriented analyses of economic behavior under uncertainty.
Giustinelli received a B.A. in Economics and Business from the University of Verona in 2003, an M.Sc. in Economics from Bocconi University in 2004, and an M.A. and Ph.D. in Economics from Northwestern University in 2005 and 2010 respectively. Before joining Bocconi University, Dr. Giustinelli worked as a Faculty Research Fellow and Research Assistant Professor at the University of Michigan's Institute for Social Research.
