Warn N. Lekfuangfu

I am an Associate Professor of Economics

at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M).

My research fields are Labour Economics, Behavioural and Applied Microeconomics, especially on the topics of early childhood, inequality, aspirations, subjective expectations and wellbeing.

During 2020-2023, I am the principal investigator of SOCINEQUAL, which is a research project on understanding the roles of subjective beliefs, future aspirations, and group identity on social inequality. This is funded Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation (under Proyectos de I+D+i Retos Investigación - Individual).

From 2023-2027, I am a co-investigator of an ERC Starting Grant funded project, MISMATCH (Suphanit Piyapromdee as the Principal Investigator).

I am also a Research Fellow at the IZA, the Centre for Research and Analysis of Migration (CReAM) (UCL), and the Center for Behavioral and Experimental Economics (CBEE) ( Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok).

I currently serve as a Board Member for the Asian and Australasian Society of Labour Economics (AASLE).

“The natural distribution is neither just nor unjust; nor is it unjust that persons are born into society at some particular position. These are simply natural facts. What is just and unjust is the way that institutions deal with these facts."
