Title of research: Rumours and Information Transmission in Real and Financial Markets

In this project,  I analyse the propagation of rumours and information in populations in which individuals make economic decisions such as investments, decisions about where to live and work and which portfolios to hold. In doing so, I make use of rumour models developed within the field of mathematical epidemiology. Using the analogy of an ‘infection in mind’, these models characterise how information, spreading from one individual to another, propagates through a population. In contrast to the existing theory, I couple these (purely mechanical) models with models of economic and financial decision making.
