Gender inequality in knowledge-based organizations : Evidence from R&D scientists in STEM fields 1985 – 2010

Rua Gomez, Carla Carolina ; Carnabuci, Gianluca (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2020 ; 2020ECO009.

This dissertation examines how intra-organizational networks interact with individual and macro-level characteristics to affect employees’ innovativeness and access to social capital in knowledge-based organizations. Primarily, my dissertation focuses on how such intra- organizational network dynamics limit or perpetuate gender inequality in the workplace. For example, I demonstrate that to...

Financial market integration and asset prices

Sandulescu, Paula Mirela ; Trojani, Fabio (Dir.) ; Gagliardini, Patrick (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2020 ; 2020ECO008.

My doctoral thesis examines the relationships among the degree of financial market integration and the pricing of different classes of assets. The first chapter provides a theoretical framework that uncovers in a model-free way the relationship between international stochastic discount factors (SDFs), stochastic wedges, and financial market structures. Exchange rates are in general different...

Ecological immunity of "Anopheles gambiae" mosquitoes

Barreaux, Antoine ; Koella, Jacob (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2016.

Malaria is a vector borne disease caused by protozoan parasites and transmitted to humans by mosquitoes. It is one of the most deadly infectious diseases in the world, with more than one million deaths each year. Malaria is even more worrying in the context of climate change, as global warming is predicted to increase the transmission to humans and to influence vector-parasite interactions. To...

Cheminements épistémologiques et discursifs dans l'écriture de recherche en contexte français : les doctorants internationaux en sciences du langage de l'Université de Franche-Comté

Favrat, Sébastien ; Gohard-Radenkovic, Aline (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Fribourg, 2020.

Cette recherche en didactique des langues interroge les difficultés rencontrées par un groupe de doctorants internationaux en sciences du langage dans la conduite et la rédaction de leur thèse. En effet, dans un contexte de massification et d’internationalisation de l’enseignement supérieur français, les unités de recherche hexagonales accueillent en moyenne 40% d’étudiants...

Relationship Processes in Understudied Samples : Implications for Relationship Functioning and Sexuality in Romantic Relationships

Uhlich, Maximiliane ; Schoebi, Dominik (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Fribourg, 2020.

Relationship functioning can be investigated from different angles; next to investigating dyadic outcomes between couples we can also zoom into processes within subjects. Adopting a cultural lens adds another layer, as the cultural context influences norms around intimate relationships, and can be inspected using the framework of Bronfenbrenner´s (1977) ecological systems theory. In more...

Reward-related behavioral and biological responses associated with eating : insights from anorexia nervosa and obesity research = Réponses bio-comportementales liées à la récompense: aperçus de la recherche en anorexie mentale et en obésité

Pereira Picolo Ribeiro, Mayron ; Martin Soelch, Chantal (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Fribourg, 2020.

Research on clinical populations with eating disturbances has shown the involvement of reward processing in the maintenance of disease- associated symptoms. Investigation on food as a reward indicates the metabolic or feeding state (i.e. fasted or fed state) as a modulator of food as a reward, but little is known about how these states influence other types of reward. This is important...

Problemlösen - (k)ein Problem? : Personalisierter Unterricht als Lerngelegenheit zum Aufbau von Problemlösekompetenzen

Schmid, Mirjam ; Pauli, Christine (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Fribourg, 2019.

Bedeutsame gesellschaftliche und bildungspolitische Veränderungen haben Anstoss zur Ent-wicklung innovativer Schul- und Unterrichtskonzepte gegeben. Eine daraus resultierende Leit-idee ist das personalisierte Lernen. Ein Schwerpunkt von Schulen, welche sich an personali-sierten Lernkonzepten orientieren, ist die Förderung fachlicher und überfachlicher Kompeten-zen, wobei eine zentrale...

Lattice-based protocols for privacy

Boschini, Cecilia ; Wolf, Stefan (Dir.) ; Camenisch, Jan (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2020 ; 2020INFO002.

Privacy and control over data have become a public concern. Simultaneously, the increasing likelihood of the construction of a general purpose quantum computer has led companies and governments to demand for quantum safe alternatives to the protocols used today. New schemes have been elaborated, whose conjectured security against a quantum computer relies on the hardness to solve different...

Essays in household finance and monetary policy transmission

Gianinazzi, Virginia ; Plazzi, Alberto (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2020 ; 2020ECO005.

This thesis consists of three chapters that contribute to two fundamental questions in finance: how households make financial decisions and how market prices react to uninformative demand shocks. The first chapter investigates how household respond to mortgage refinancing incentives. A well-documented finding in household finance is that many borrowers miss out on substantial savings by...

The Dynamic Reorganization of Cortical Network Interactions during Visual Selective Attention

Pagnotta, Mattia ; Plomp, Gijs (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Fribourg, 2020.

Visual selective attention prioritizes the processing of behaviorally relevant over irrelevant information, to optimize the use of limited cognitive resources in the brain. These selective mechanisms preferentially route relevant neuronal representations through a network of distributed brain regions. Previous studies suggested that selective information routing in the attention network may...
