  • Kohane, Isaac; Lee, Kyungjoon; Brownstein, John S.; Mills, Richard G. (Public Library of Science, 2010-12)
    Background It has been shown that large interdisciplinary teams working across geography are more likely to be impactful. We asked whether the physical proximity of collaborators remained a strong predictor of the ...
  • Jiang, Yang; He, Dongquan; Mao, Qizhi; Zegras, P. Christopher (Springer-Verlag, 2014-11)
    Rapidly increasing transportation energy use in China poses challenges to national energy security and the mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions. Meanwhile, the development of automobile oriented neighborhood structures, ...
  • Huang, Yasheng; Jin, Li; Qian, Yi (MIT Press, 2013-07)
    Most of the economic analyses of the overseas Chinese network focus on trade and investment flows at the country level. In this paper, we analyze the effects of the ethnic Chinese network at the firm level. Contrary to the ...
  • Sterman, John (John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2010-10)
    Research shows widespread misunderstanding of stocks and flows, even among highly educated adults. People fail to grasp that any stock rises (falls) when the inflow exceeds (is less than) the outflow. Rather, people often ...
  • Morley, Wendy A.; Hadden, Michael J.; Michener, Martin C.; Seneff, Stephanie (Ommega Publishers, 2016-11)
     Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a fatal neurodegenerative disease involving several protein mutations in glycine-rich regions with limited treatment options. 90 - 95% of all cases are non-familial with epidemiological ...
  • Daskalakis, Konstantinos; Papadimitriou, Christos H; Tzamos, Christos (Association for Computing Machinery, 2016-07)
    We study the problem of optimal auction design in a valuation model, explicitly motivated by online ad auctions, in which there is two-way informational asymmetry, in the sense that private information is available to both ...
  • Klima, Kelly; Morgan, M. Granger; Grossmann, Iris; Emanuel, Kerry Andrew (American Chemical Society, 2011-04)
    Recent dramatic increases in damages caused by tropical cyclones (TCs) and improved understanding of TC physics have led DHS to fund research on intentional hurricane modification. We present a decision analytic assessment ...
  • Roberts, Shannon C.; Lee, Joonbum; Reimer, Bryan; Mehler, Bruce (Public Library of Science, 2017-02)
    Previous literature has shown that vehicle crash risks increases as drivers’ off-road glance duration increases. Many factors influence drivers’ glance duration such as individual differences, driving environment, or task ...
  • Yang, Ruo Xi; Quhe, Ruge; Zhong, Hongxia; Cong, Linxiao; Ye, Meng; Ni, Zeyuan; Song, Zhigang; Yang, Jinbo; Shi, Junjie; Lu, Jing; Wang, Yangyang; Li, Ju (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015-11)
    Formation of low-resistance metal contacts is the biggest challenge that masks the intrinsic exceptional electronic properties of two dimensional WSe[subscript 2] devices. We present the first comparative study of the ...
  • Rajimehr, Reza; Tootell, Roger B. H. (Society for Neuroscience, 2009-09)
    In humans and other Old World primates, much of visual cortex comprises a set of retinotopic maps, embedded in a cortical sheet with well known, identifiable folding patterns. However, the relationship between these two ...
  • Dunham, Yarrow; Snell, Steven A.; Lieberman, Evan S (Public Library of Science, 2016-03)
    In this article, we report findings from an original survey experiment investigating the effects of different framings of disease threats on individual risk perceptions and policy priorities. We analyze responses from 1,946 ...
  • Frydman, Carola; Molly, Raven S. (Springer Science + Business Media B.V., 2011-02)
    The trends in executive pay and labor income tax rates since the 1940s suggest a high elasticity of taxable income with respect to tax policy. By contrast, the level and structure of executive compensation have been largely ...
  • Skow, Bradford (Philosophy of Science Association, 2011-07)
    Is there anything more to temperature than the ordering of things from colder to hotter? Are there also facts, for example, about how much hotter (twice as hot, three times as hot...) one thing is than another? There ...
  • Schoar, Antoinette; Zuo, Luo (American Economic Association, 2016-05)
    We study how investors perceive the skill set that different types of CEOs bring into their companies. We compare CEOs who started their careers during a recession with other CEOs. We show that the announcement return ...
  • Lee, Jae Seung; Park, Sungjin; Zegras, Pericles C; Ben-Joseph, Eran (Elsevier, 2014-02)
    We compare the travel behavior of urban versus suburban baby boomers in the Boston metropolitan area. Using propensity score matching to attempt to control for self-selection and data from two surveys implemented in 2008 ...
  • Budish, Eric; Roin, Ben; Williams, Heidi L. (American Economic Association, 2015-07)
    We investigate whether private research investments are distorted away from long-term projects. Our theoretical model highlights two potential sources of this distortion: short-termism and the fixed patent term. Our empirical ...
  • Banerjee, Abhijit; Duflo, Esther (Oxford University Press, 2014-02)
    This article uses variation in access to a targeted lending program to estimate whether firms are credit constrained. While both constrained and unconstrained firms may be willing to absorb all the directed credit that ...
  • Armstrong, Christopher S.; Core, John E.; Guay, Wayne R. (Elsevier B.V., 2014-05)
    Although recent research documents a positive relation between corporate transparency and the proportion of independent directors, the direction of causality is unclear. We examine a regulatory shock that substantially ...
  • Crepon, Bruno; Duflo, Esther; Gurgand, Marc; Rathelot, Roland; Zamora, Philippe (Oxford University Press, 2013-01)
    This article reports the results from a randomized experiment designed to evaluate the direct and indirect (displacement) impacts of job placement assistance on the labor market outcomes of young, educated job seekers in ...
  • Lo, Andrew W.; Brennan, Thomas J. (University of Texas School of Law, 2012-01)
    A common theme in the regulation of financial institutions and transactions is leverage constraints. Although such constraints are implemented in various ways—from minimum net capital rules to margin requirements to credit ...
