Federico Vaccari

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the IMT School of Advanced Studies, Laboratory for the Analysis of Complex Economic Systems (AXES).

Before joining IMT, I was a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow at the University of Trento. In 2018/2019, I was a Postdoctoral Associate at the University of Rochester, Wallis Institute of Political Economy. I received my Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Essex in 2018.

In 2019, I won an EU's Horizon2020 MSCA grant. Click here to access the grant's dedicated webpage.

My research interests are in Microeconomics, Political Economy, and Information Economics. 

I will be in the 2022/23 academic job market and am available for interviews at your convenience.
