Mauro obtained a PhD in Economics at the University of Trento (Italy) in 2011. During the 2009-2010 academic year, he was a visiting PhD student at the University Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona, Spain). Mauro spent two academic years - 2010-2011 and 2011-2012 - at the University of St Andrews (UK) as Early Career Lecturer, and then moved on to University College London (UK) in 2012-2013 as Research Associate. In 2013 Mauro was appointed as Lecturer in Economics by the University of Aberdeen. Currently, he holds a Senior Lecturer position at Aberdeen.
Mauro's research interests are in bounded rationality, economic theory, and experimental economics.
My research interests are in Economic Theory, Bounded Rationality, and Experiments.
Experimental evidence has challenged the presumption that economic agents are rational. My research investigates the implications of replacing the full rationality assumption with a more realistic assumption of bounded rationality on relevant aspects of important economic phenomena, such as financial decisions and the consumer’s behaviour in the market place. From a methodological point of view, my approach involves both the development and the analysis of models and the design and the implementation of experiments.
