Dr Domenico Massaro was recently awarded a €250,000 Scientific Independence of young Researchers grant (SIR) for his behavioral macroeconomics project. The SIR grant supports young researchers in the early stages of their independent research activity.
Massaro obtained his PhD from the University of Amsterdam in 2012 under the supervision of Prof. Cars Hommes, with a dissertation on Bounded Rationality and Heterogeneous Expectations in Macroeconomics. From 2012 to 2015 he has been a Postdoc researcher at the University of Amsterdam, working on the EU-FP7 project “Complexity Research Initiatives for Systemic Instabilities” (CRISIS).
Starting 25 September 2015, Domenico will commence work on his new project at the Catholic University of Milan.
