I’m Associate Professor at the Department of Economics – University of Pisa. I received the Master and PhD degrees in Economics at the University of Siena.
My main research interests involve distribution of income and wealth, development economics, ecological economics, non-linear dynamics, ecological sustainability and degrowth. In recent years, my research is focused on the socio-economic effects of policies to promote the transition towards sustainability.
Currently, I’m leading the group at University of Pisa in the Horizon2020 LOCOMOTION and the Pisa unit in the PRIN2017 project COSMOPROBE. In September 2020, I started, as principle investigator, ECOESIONE, a project founded by the Ministry of Environment.
I teach Principles of Economics and Development Economics at the bachalor, Globalization and Economic Development at the Master of Science in Economics, and Ecological Economics and Sustainability at Ph.D. in Economics of the Tuscan Universities.
My contributions are published in journals, such as, among the others, B.E. Journal of Economic Analysis and Policy, Ecological Economics, European Journal of Political Economy, Exploration in Economic History, Journal of Cleaner Production, Journal of Economic Behaviour and Organization, Journal of Economic Inequality, Metroeconomica, Nature Sustainability, Oxford Economic Papers.
