Hello! Welcome to my website.
My name is Helene Purcell and I am a final-year PhD student in the Economics Department at Fordham University. I am currently on the job market.
My job market paper focuses on the impact of natural disasters on risk preferences in Indonesia. My other research includes an impact evaluation of a program for pastoralists in Tanzania and Ethiopia, how personality traits influence job market outcomes in Indonesia, and early childhood disaster shocks and their relation to risk preference formation.
I also have professional experience in Commercial Banking and Economic Consulting.
