Diego C. Nocetti, an associate professor of economics and finance, was awarded the John W. Graham Jr. Faculty Research Award during Clarkson University's 119th commencement ceremony on May 12, 2012. Dr. Nocetti earned his Ph.D. in economics at the Fogelman College of Business and Economics at the University of Memphis and currently teaches at Clarkson University School of Business.

His research focuses on the economics of uncertainty, with particular emphasis on the development of theoretical models that analyze both positive and normative aspects of decision-making under uncertainty.

In his latest research, Nocetti has explored the theory of precautionary saving in the presence of multiple sources of risk, the theory of comparative risk aversion among groups, and social discounting of environmental projects with uncertain returns.

His research has been published in a number of leading academic journals including Management Science, Journal of Money Credit and Banking, Journal of Economic Dynamics and Control, Social Choice and Welfare, Economics Letters, B.E. Journal of Economic Analysis and Policy, Review of Law and Economics, and Journal of Applied Economics.

Nocetti's article "Properties of the Social Discount Rate in a Benthamite Framework with Heterogeneous Degrees of Impatience," published in Management Science, was awarded the Finance and Sustainability European Research Award in the category Best Published Research Article.

He has presented his research at numerous academic conferences and has chaired several conference sessions. Nocetti has frequently served as ad hoc reviewer for highly regarded academic journals. He is a member of the American Economic Association, the Econometric Society, and the Western Economic Association.
