Vessela Daskalova

I am an economist working on discrimination, social identity, and bounded rationality. I build theories, conduct experiments, and design computational models to try to better understand decision making in both individual and strategic/collective decision making situations.

My research fields are Behavioural and Experimental Economics, Microeconomic Theory, and Political Economy.

I am an Assistant Professor of Economics at University College Dublin, a Fellow at the Geary Institute for Public Policy, and Associate Faculty at Toulouse School of Economics.

I completed my PhD at Queen Mary University of London and then spent some time at the University of Cambridge, the Institute for Advanced Study in Toulouse, and Toulouse School of Economics.
