CREI and Universitat Pompeu Fabra
Nicola Gennaioli earned his PhD in Economics at Harvard University in 2004. He joined CREI as a junior researcher on September 2007. He is also Adjunct Professor of the Economics Department, Universitat Pompeu Fabra. He has a Ramon y Cajal Fellowship since 2008. In 2009, he was awarded an ERC Starting Grant. He has been appointed as a Panel Member for the CEPR Economic Policy Journal. Professor Gennaioli's research project focuses on the feedback mechanisms that connect legal and political institutions with private contracting and the functioning of globalized markets. He studies the role of national institutions in an increasingly integrated world, and the impact of economic and political integration on a country's path of institutional development. Giacomo Ponzetto research work will basically fit in this research line.
His research interests include law and economics, contract theory, political economy and economic development.
