Biographie

I am interested in complex economic systems, especially phenomena of self-organisation and `emergence' stemming from non-linearities and structure within the aggregation of individual actions into population behaviour. I study mainly financial markets and environmental problems. In particular the interplay between human behaviour and ecological systems, the economics and policy analysis of sustainable transitions, and the evolutionary dynamics of financial markets as an explanation of markets instability and efficiency. The main tool of my study are simple tractable models of human behaviour with heterogeneous agents, social interactions and multiple equilibria, in a multidisciplinary approach that builds on game theory, network theory, statistical mechanics and, more recently, experimental economics. The results of my analysis cover the conditions for the emergence of cooperative behaviour, the sudden transitions of social tipping points, and ultimately give indications for when the endogenous emergence of cooperation is a viable bottom-up alternative to binding political agreements and stringent regulations, exploiting self-organisation patterns.
