Assistant Professor of Finance Dimitra Papadovasilaki is a contributing author of a study published in the American Psychological Association (APA) journal Decision that examines how COVID-19 has affected the market and investors.

“Investor Beliefs in the Midst of a Market Crash and the Covid 19 Pandemic Survey and Experimental Evidence” considers the effect of COVID-19, and the market fluctuations it has induced, on the beliefs held by investors about the future of the market. Papadovasilaki, along with three co-authors, sought to investigate this relationship via a controlled laboratory experiment and surveys.

Papadovasilaki worked on the Investor Beliefs study with colleagues in the College of Business at the University of Nevada, Reno: Associate Professor of Economics Federico Guerrero, Assistant Professor of Management Garret Ridinger, and Professor of Strategic Management and Director of PhD in Business Administration Program James Sundali.

The American Psychological Association’s Decision is a multidisciplinary research journal focused on a theoretical understanding of neural, cognitive, social, and economic aspects of human judgment and decision-making behavior.
