University of Chicago, Department of Economics
Pietro is a PhD student in Economics at the University of Chicago, interested in the process of capabilities formation and human capital development in children and adolescents. In particular, his current research explores the role of family investments, early childhood interventions, and interactions between personality and health in explaining the long-term inequality across gender and socioeconomic status. More broadly, he is interested in Labor Economics and Applied Econometrics. He is an organizing member of The Chicago initiative for Economic Development and Early Childhood (CEDEC) and a member of the Health Inequality (HI) and Early Childhood Interventions (ECI) working groups of the Human Capital and Economic Working Group network.
When not working, Pietro loves to bike and (would) like to ski or hike. However, since Chicago is not really generous in term of mountain slopes, he has converted himself into a neophyte cross-country skier in the winter and kayaker in the summer.
