Our activities

One objective of LABEL is to disseminate recent and novel research on the many facets of decision-making by organizing courses, workshops and conferences. Below are some examples of activities organized by our group.

  • Lab meetings

    Lab meetings meet every Thursday from 10:30am to 12:00pm in KAP 335. They are meant to discuss research ideas and current projects in our group. They also offer a lab experience to PhD students who have not yet decided on a dissertation topic. 

  • Seminars and workshops

    We regularly invite external speakers to present their research. Some of these meetings are co-organized with our sister center TREND and/or IEPR.

  • Education

    We have designed a series of courses open to USC students interested in learning about decision-making from the perspective of Economics. Those classes offer an oveview of the methodology used in our field. Those classes can be taken in parallel to classes offered in other departments on related topics. We believe the study of decision-making can largely benefit from the combination of techniques and approaches. We encourage you to visit the Education page for more information.

  • Open house

    We organize events to present our research to USC alumni or prospective students. During those events, we open the experimental laboratory for a short tour. 

  • Research experience

    We offer the opportunity to undergraduate and master students to participate actively in research projects developed by LABEL researchers. For more information about current research opportunities, please check our positions and contact us at label@dornsife.usc.edu.

  • Little experimentalists

    We design educational programs for children enrolled in schools we partner with. Those include field trips to LABEL, game theory fun classes and experimental science classes. Please visit the "Little Experimentalists" page for more information.
