I have decided not to continue in academia. Because of this, I don’t have any reason to write a research statement. But if I had to, I would have worked on the development of agent-based models in economics. More precisely, I would have worked on the epistemology, history and statistical exploitation (through machine learning) of agent-based models.
I am deeply convinced agent-based models can bring a lot of insightful answers to questions that bother economists.
But as interesting this mini research statement might seem, at the end I have realized that staying in academia would have costed me my happiness. Not worth it.
