Giovanni Gallipoli is Associate Professor in the Vancouver School of Economics at the University of British Columbia. The general theme of Gallipoli's research relates to the role of heterogeneity in shaping both individual behaviors and aggregate economic outcomes. Dr. Gallipoli has worked on a variety of topics, including the general equilibrium effects of government policies that promote skill formation; the link between skill heterogeneity in the working population and a country's comparative advantage; the effects of family interactions on labor supply, children outcomes and intergenerational mobility; the costs of occupational mobility; and the role of complementarity in coordination games and in the private provision of public goods.
Gallipoli is a past Fulbright Scholar, and a recipient of the Young Economist Award (2003) and of the FEEM Award (2009) of the European Economic Association.
Gallipoli received a B.A. from Sant'Anna School of Advanced Studies, University of Pisa (Italy) before receiving his Ph.D. in Economics from University College London (UK) in 2007.
