Short Bio

I have a Bachelor in Statistics and Economics (University of Bologna, Italy), a Master's of Arts in Transportation Policy, Operations and Logistics (George Mason University, USA), and a Ph.D. in Economics (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, The Netherlands). I have worked in Belgium, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Switzerland and the USA, concentrating, over the years, on topics such as complex networks, regional employment forecasting, regional unemployment differentials, commuting networks and regional innovation processes. Methodologically, I'm currently interested in spatial statistics and econometrics, in particular with applications to nonlinear and mixed methods. I've been the local unit coordinator for a FIRB 2012 project, and one of the Editors of REGION, the journal of the European Regional Science Association (ERSA), from 2014 to 2020. I'm currently overseeing, for the University of Bologna, a JPI-Urban Europe ERA-NET Cofund Urban Accessibility and Connectivity (ENUAC) project on "Smart Mobility Hubs as Game Changers in Transport (SmartHubs)".
