Researchers at the University of Alabama were awarded a grant to see if the long-term effects of the coronavirus pandemic may include poor decision-making by those who experience increased stress levels.

Laura Razzolini and Michael Price, professors of economics, finance and legal studies in the Culverhouse College of Business, were awarded more than $82,000 under the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Rapid Response Research program, set up to review and fund projects with an urgent need to gather data during or right after emergency events and natural disasters.

This research at UA is part of NSF’s effort to quickly start nonmedical, nonclinical-care research that can be used immediately to explore how to model and understand the spread of COVID-19, to inform and educate about the consequences of virus transmission and prevention, and to encourage the development of processes and actions to address this global challenge.
