Biographical sketch and research interests

Gina Yannitell Reinhardt is Lecturer (Assistant Professor) of Government at the University of Essex. The overarching questions driving her research have to do with how people make decisions with incomplete, imperfect, or asymmetric information, and how those decisions affect the distribution of wealth in society. These questions have led her to a variety of substantive research topics, mainly focused on economic and social development, foreign aid, disasters, and trust. She is currently beginning a new project investigating how foreign aid can encourage disaster resilience in developing countries.
