Maria Jose Boccardi is a Postdoctoral associate at New York University in Abu Dhabi. She obtained her PhD in Economics in 2016 from Brown University.  Her research focuses on the relation between behavioral models and observed data; in particular, what are the behavioral implications of consumption models, how can these be tested for and power considerations when working with limited data sets.


Maria Jose Boccardi is currently working on two main lines of research: (i) predictive ability for different behavioral models and data sets and its connection to the fit and power trade off when testing for different economic theory for a given set of observations, (ii) models of limited consideration and bounded rationality and how these can be brought to empirical work.
