Giovanni Andreottola

I am an Assistant Professor (non tenure-track) at the Department of Economics of the Johannes Kepler University (JKU) of Linz, Austria. 

Prior to that,  I was an Assistant Professor at the Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU) , a  Postdoctoral Fellow at CSEF (Federico II University of Naples), and a postdoc at the Cowles Foundation at Yale University.

In October 2017 I received my PhD in Economics from the European University Institute, in Florence.

I am an applied theorist specializing in Political Economy.

Here is my CV.
