Andrea Gallice



I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Economics, Statistics and Social Sciences of the University of Torino and a Research Affiliate of the Collegio Carlo Alberto. My areas of research are Industrial Organization, Auction Theory, Game Theory and Economics of Education.

I hold a Ph.D. in Economics from the European University Institute (with a period as a Visiting Scholar at UC, Berkeley). After the Ph.D., I moved to the University of Munich as a Marie Curie Fellow in the framework of the CEPR/ENABLE network. I have also been a Research Fellow at the International Centre for Economic Research and a Postdoc at the University of Siena. I am currently teaching the course "Microeconomia C" at the School of Management and Economics of the University of Torino.
