Professor of Economics Daniela Puzzello has been awarded funding by the Faculty Research Support Program, a highly competitive program at the Office of the Vice Provost for Research. This funding will support her research project “Central Bank Digital Currency and Financial Inclusion.” In this project, Daniela and her collaborators will use survey methods to examine the main reasons why many individuals do not use or underutilize banking services in the U.S. The findings from this research will help guide the design of CBDC’s features and implementation choices, with special emphasis on designs that can best address the needs of the unbanked and underbanked.
