Short Bio

Current research interests: Game theory; International environmental agreements; Experimental Economics; Cooperation; Social tipping interventions; Social norms

I am Professor of Environmental Economics at the Department of Economics of the University of Bologna. Prior to joining Bologna, I was Associate Professor at the London School of Economics, where I led the Changing Behaviour Research Programme at the Grantham Research Institute. I have published in generalist journals such as Science, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences and in top field journals such as Journal of Environmental Economics and Management and Nature Climate Change.

My research focuses on overcoming behavioural and political economy barriers to cooperation in the climate commons. This is tackled through a combination of theory and experiments. 

I am the PI of "GREEN TIPPING", a 5-year ERC Consolidator grant that investigates the effectiveness of "Social Tipping Interventions" to scale up climate cooperation using game theory as well as lab, online and field experiments. More information on the project and job openings here
