Giovanni is a professor in the Vancouver School of Economics at UBC. His research focuses on the measurement and impact of heterogeneity on individual behaviors and aggregate economic outcomes, with a focus on policy. Dr. Gallipoli has worked on a variety of topics, including numerical general equilibrium models of consumption and income inequality; the link between skill heterogeneity in the working population and a country’s comparative advantage; the effects of family interactions on labour supply, children outcomes, and intergenerational mobility; and problems of information diffusion in non-linear models of private provision of public goods.
Giovanni has interests in the implementation of numerical models that make use of large data sets (“big data”), and he lectures on computational methods for implementing large-scale macroeconomic models with heterogeneous agents that rely on large data sets.
Giovanni is a recipient of the Killam Research Award (2020), the FEEM Award (2009), and the Young Economist Award (2003) of the European Economic Association. He is a former Fulbright Scholar and Weatherhall fellow. He is affiliated with the Center for Economic Policy Research in the UK (CEPR research fellow) and the Human Capital center at the University of Chicago (HCEO). He is an alumnus of the Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies and the University of Pisa in Italy, and received his Ph.D. in Economics from University College London in the UK.
