Daniela Del Boca and Chris Flinn are recognized for work on household economics

Congratulations to Carlo Alberto Fellow Daniela Del Boca and to Senior Research Fellow Chris Flinn for receiving important recognition to their work on household economics and child development.

Chris and Daniela have been awarded a grant by the US National Science Foundation for their project titled "Actors in the Child Development Process”. The objective of their project is to broaden the understanding of the cognitive development of children using a modeling framework that allows them to incorporate direct measures of investment activity by the parents, children, and schools in the production of the child’s cognitive ability from birth through adolescence.
