Angela Sutan


I am a (HDR) Professor in Behavioral and Experimental Economics at the Economics and Social Sciences Departement (Burgundy School of Business).

My research fields are related to social and antisocial behaviors, beliefs formation in negative feedback environments and credence goods in the wine domain and pro-environmental attitudes.

I often participate in media debates (Le Monde, The Conversation, radio and TV...).

In 2008, I created the LESSAC and I am now supervising its research, pedagogical and science popularization activities. I was part of the Ministry of Research Exhibition "145 women talk about science" and I coordinated the Big Experiment (la Grande Experience Participative) for the Researchers' Night.

I am also the co-director of the Msc in Data Science and Organizational Behavior.

For the 2016-2022 period, I was the SABE (Society for the Advancement of Behavioral Economics) Country Representative (for France) and an elected member of the SABE Board, and since January 2018, I am the General Secretary of the ASFEE (Association Française d'Economie Expérimentale - the french experimentalists' association). I am currently a member of the Scientific Committee of the EUROPEAN PHD IN SOCIO-ECONOMIC AND STATISTICAL STUDIES at La Sapienza, Rome.

Visiting research stays: LUISS Rome; La Sapienza, Rome; Geary Institute, UCD Dublin; Pompeu Fabra University, Barcelona; LISER Luxembourg; CeNDEF (Center for Nonlinear Dynamics in Economics and Finance), University of Amsterdam; MELESSA, Ludwig Maximilian University, Munich.
