Giovanni has worked on a variety of topics, including the equilibrium effects of policies that promote skill formation; the link between skill heterogeneity and a country's comparative advantage; the influence of families on long-term outcomes such as labor supply and consumption; intergenerational mobility and the linkages between parental heterogeneity and inequality; and how firm-level differences contribute to variation in workers’ skill returns.
