Giovanni CompianiBooth School of Business
I am a PhD candidate in Economics at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) and Barcelona Graduate School of Economics, Spain. I work under the supervision of Prof. Hannes Mueller and Prof. David Nagy.
My research interests are development, trade, economic geography, and machine learning.
In my work, I study how climate-related shocks affect economic development. In order to do so, I rely upon reduced-form causal inference and/or structural modeling and estimation, using spatial trade theory for the latter.
My job market paper centers at how climate change can lead to migration in sub-Saharan Africa, within and across countries, during the next decades.
I am a graduate student at MIT studying economic theory and organizational economics. My main interests include diffusion, aggregation, and design of information in economic environments such as social networks and competitive markets. I am also interested in the study of non-standard preferences under risk and uncertainty and their effect in otherwise standard models of strategic interactions.
