Alessandro Tavoni holds a PhD in Economics from Universita’ Ca’ Foscari di Venezia (2011). Prior to joining the Economics department at the University of Bologna, he was Associate Professor at the London School of Economics, where he led the Changing Behaviour Research Programme at the Grantham Research Institute. He has published in generalist journals such as Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences and in top field journals such as Journal of Environmental Economics and Management and Nature Climate Change. Alessandro’s research spans several topics in environmental economics, primarily related to overcoming behavioural and political economy barriers to cooperation in the (climate) commons. This is tackled through a combination of non-cooperative and evolutionary game theory models, as well as surveys, laboratory and field experiments, in an effort to shed light on potential solutions to environmental dilemmas.
