Introduction and Welcome

Thank you very much for visiting. Here you will find information about my professional life, current and past research, policy engagements, and other resources.

As I elaborate this site, the world is fighting the Covid-19 crisis, possibly the biggest crisis in our lifetimes. Like many others, I am devoting a lot of time and effort to help understanding of the pandemic and designing appropriate policy responses. A page in this site documents my ongoing attempts to contribute.

Another feature, new for me: a professional blog.

Please dive in. I will appreciate any feedback, as this page will be in perpetual rebuilding. Thanks again and regards, Roberto.
