HHB welcomes Agar Brugiavini - Professor of Economics at the Ca' Foscari University of Venice, Director of the Collegio Internazionale Ca'Foscari and Dean of the Venice International University (VIU) - as a HHB Fellow.
Prof. Brugiavini holds a PhD from LSE (1990), with a thesis titled “Longevity Risk and the Life Cycle”. Since then, she has widely investigated the behaviour of individuals and household both in the area of consumption and saving and in the area of labour supply. In particular, she is interested in the effects of pension reforms on household’s saving decisions, in retirement choices and in the insurance aspects of pension arrangements. More recently she has looked at the relationship between health conditions and economic behaviour. She is currently member of the Core Management Group of the SHARE project, funded by the EU.
