Three PhD students selected to attend 6th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting on Economic Sciences

This summer, three Boston University PhD students will attend the 6th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting on Economic Sciences in Germany. Costas Cavounidis, Matthew Gudgeon, and Maria Palacios were selected through a multi-step application process that evaluated a candidate’s research potential, interest in international dialogue within the academic community, and motivation. Additionally, Matthew Gudgeon has been selected to present his paper “Frictions in Adjusting Earnings: Evidence from Notches in German Mini Jobs” during the meeting.

This meeting provides young economists an ideal setting to learn, share, and exchange ideas with the international economics community. While attending the conference, all three students will attend lectures and seminars presented by Nobel Laureates and other noted economists as well as discuss their own research. Up to 20 Nobel Laureates and nearly 400 young scientists from around the world will be in attendance. Mario Draghi, president of the European Central Bank, will give the keynote address.

Congratulations to Costas, Matthew, and Maria on your selection!
