Research highlights and thought leadership from IESE
Behavior & pandemics: Sebastian Hafenbradl in Science Advances
IESE professor Sebastian Hafenbradl is the co-author of a new article, “The transmission game: Testing behavioral interventions in a pandemic-like simulation,” published in Science Advances. The article creates a new analytical tool – an online game – to shed light on what does and doesn't help promote compliance with public health measures.
Business & environment: Pietro Bonetti in Science
IESE professor Pietro Bonetti is the co-author of a new article, titled “Large-Sample Evidence on the Impact of Unconventional Oil and Gas Development on Surface Waters,” published in the August 2021 edition of Science. The article finds that hydraulic fracturing, better known as fracking, is linked to higher salt concentration in surface waters and concludes that additional studies are needed to fully understand the environmental impact of fracking.
Gender & innovation: Sampsa Samila in Science
IESE professor Sampsa Samila is the co-author of “Who do we invent for? Patents by women focus more on women's health, but few women get to invent,” an article published in the prestigious scientific journal Science. After analyzing more than 430,000 U.S. biomedical patents filed between 1976 and 2010, the authors find that all-female inventor teams are 35% more likely to focus on women's health than all-male teams.
