Mette Trier Damgaard and Sune Lauth Gadegaard (affiliated with CORAL), both from the Department of Economics and Business, have been awarded travel grants of 150,000 DKK from Købmand Ferdinand Sallings Mindefond.

Mette Trier Damgaard has a strong background in consumer behavior and a deep interest in explaining real world phenomena in her research. She has started with two very promising research projects - besides taking the obligatory first year PhD courses. Mette Trier Damgaard is going to the University of California at Berkeley. Here she can interact with the top researchers in behavioral economics. Professor Stefano Della Vigna will serve as her host. He is one of the leading researchers in behavioral search theory.

Sune Lauth Gadegaard’s research is in the field of operations research, and more specifically it considers multi–objective optimization within the field of facility location problems. The aim is to develop algorithms and procedures to tackle the fact that most decision problems have more than one objective; namely to minimize cost, maximize customer share, minimize negative environmental impact and so on. The research is mainly focused on practical solution methods. Sune is going to Lancaster University, The Management School. Here he will have the privilege to cooperate with professor Ehrgott, who is one of the leading researchers in multi–objective optimization.
