Name: Annamaria Lusardi
Job title: Denit Trust Professor of Economics and Accountancy.
Recent research project: Financial literacy around the World (FLAT World).
Time at GW: I joined GW this academic year, so I am very new to the School.
Best part of working at GWSB: Being of the center of it all, a few blocks from the US Treasury (I served as an academic adviser for the US Treasury) and the White House and being part of a very international community here at GW.
What co-workers do not know about me: I was one of the leaders of the student movement in my native Italy. I believe my self-confidence and resilience come from that experience back in high school.
Family: Most of my family live in Italy, so I go there as often as I can.
Favorite things to do on the weekend: Running, cooking and going to the opera as often as possible.
Favorite vacation spots: Italy and the South of France.
Favorite book: I am reading Cleopatra, a gift from a friend after he heard about my trip to Cairo, Egypt last November for a conference.
