Economics Grad Student Receives $50,000 Grant

September 23, 2022

Ph.D. student Kris Gulati was awarded a $50,000 Wikimedia Research and Technology Fund grant by the Wikimedia Foundation to look at its role in shaping and directing science.

Gulati, who works with Chair of Department of Economics and Business Management Professor Christian Fons-Rosen, is interested in the economics of science and innovation.

“Largely, I'm interested in how we can improve scientists' productivity to increase the quality and quantity of academic research and translate that into improved living standards for people,” Gulati said. “A quote by Ioannidis I love summarizes it well, ‘Science is the best thing that has happened to humans, but we can do it much better.’”
