Research Orientation

Paolo is an applied microeconomist who explores questions about productivity, innovation, the input-output structure of the economy, and economic geography. He is especially eager to pursue projects with macroeconomic and policy implications. Another theme of his work is the adoption of ideas about networks in order to provide a finer-grained characterization of microeconomic interactions. He has also developed a side interest in the econometrics of networks.
