Giovanni Pellegrino


Giovanni Pellegrino RTDb P/01

Giovanni works on Applied Macroeconomics, Monetary Economics, Macroeconomic Uncertainty and Nonlinear methods. 

"I will soon be joining the excellent research group in Macroeconomics and Macroeconometrics of the dSEA. I conduct research in the area of applied macroeconomics and have worked on topics such as the effectiveness of monetary policy stimuli and the effects of uncertainty shocks in different economic environments. I am interested in the use of structural models similar to those in use in major central banks to study the effects of shocks as estimated by frontier macroeconometric methods. I will soon start working on the effects and transmission channels of uncertainty related to the level of future inflation. I am very confident that there will be many productive collaborations with members of the department!".

Bruno Buchetti


Bruno Buchetti P/07

Bruno works on Financial Accounting, Corporate Governance and Banking.

"I had the pleasure to work for our department during the last two years and I am really happy to start this new journey here. In my research, I investigate how changes to accounting rules affect the quality, informativeness and transparency of financial statements influencing in this way the real economy (e.g., in terms of access to public funds, credit allocation and corporate survival). I also study how good corporate governance practices can become a tool for better protecting shareholders and the other relevant stakeholders."
