Jacopo Staccioli is Assistant Professor of Economic Policy (s.s.d. SECS-P/02) at the Department of Economic Policy, Catholic University of Milan, Italy, Affiliate Researcher at the Institute of Economics, Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies, Pisa, Italy, and Fellow at the Global Labor Organization. Currently, he is also External Consultant to the OECD Directorate for Science, Technology and Innovation, Paris, France, and Adjunct Professor at the Faculty of Political, Economic and Social Sciences, University of Milan, Italy.
He is mainly interested in the nexus between technological innovation and employment dynamics, which he investigates under a twofold empirical approach. On the one hand, he employs machine learning and big-data analytics techniques to explore the knowledge-base embedded into large datasets of patent documents; on the other hand, he collects first-hand testimony from within firms by means of field-work activity and interviews to blue- and white-collar workers.
He previously earned a Ph.D. in Economics at Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies with a thesis on financial markets’ dynamics titled ‘Essays on the emergence of endogenous financial fluctuations’ under the supervision of Prof. Giovanni Dosi.
