Università Politecnica delle Marche (Ancona) 12-16 September 2022
Mauro Gallegati, Full Professor, Università Politecnica delle Marche.
After having earned his PhD in Economics in 1989 at Marche Polytechnic University with a thesis on financial fragility under the supervision of Hyman Minsky, he has held visiting positions, both as a scholar and as a professor at Washington University - St. Louis, University of Cambridge, Stanford University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Columbia University, Santa Fe Institute, Brookings Institution, University of Technology, Sydney, Kyoto University, ETH. He has been the President of the ESHIA Society (Economic science with heterogeneous interacting agents). His research activity is mainly centered on complexity economics. Within this field of research he has published scientific works with Bruce Greenwald, Joseph Stiglitz, Domenico Delli Gatti. With Joseph Stiglitz, Gallegati has developed a theory of asymmetric information with heterogeneous agents and its applications.
Domenico Delli Gatti, Full Professor, Università Cattolica di Milano.
Domenico is Economics Professor at Catholic University, Milan, where he received his PhD in 1987. He has been a visiting scholar at Washington University in Saint Louis, University of Cambridge, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Stanford University, New School for Social Research, University of California in Santa Cruz, Santa Fe Institute, Columbia University. His research interests focus on the role of financial factors (firms' and banks' financial fragility) in business fluctuations, a field he started exploring in collaboration with Hyman Minsky, revisited in a new light due to the research work carried out with Joe Stiglitz and Bruce Greenwald. Recently he has devoted his research effort to two areas of research. The first one concerns the properties of "financial accelerator" multi-agent models. The second area concerns the properties of networks of borrowing-lending relationships. He is author and editor of a vast body of publications. Together with Mauro Gallegati Domenico is one of the pioneering scholars in the field of Agent-Based macro models.
Gennaro Zezza is Associate Professor in Economics at Dipartimento di Economia e Giurisprudenza, Università di Cassino e del Lazio meridionale, Italy, and Research Scholar at the Levy Economics Institute of Bard College, US. His main area of research is in post-Keynesian stock-flow-consistent modeling: he helped develop this approach working with the late Wynne Godley in the United Kingdom, Denmark, as well as at the Levy Institute. He published theoretical contributions on SFC models in academic journals and books, and contributed to the development of SFC models for the United States, Greece, Italy, and Ecuador. The first three models are in use at the Levy Institute, while the model for Ecuador is in use at the Ministry of Economics. Among his most recent publication: 'Stock-flow-consistent macroeconomic models: A survey' (joint with M.Nikiforos), Journal of Economic Surveys, 31(5), 1204-1239, and 'On the design of empirical stock- flow-consistent models', European Journal of Economics and Economic Policy: Intervention, 16(1) 134-158..

She obtained the PhD in Economics at the Università Politecnica delle Marche (Italy) in 2014 and she spent 4 years at the Universitat Jaume I (Spain) to improve her knowledge in the field of experimental economics. The main focus of her research is to investigate how economic policies can be shaped taking into account individuals' behavior. She applies the tools of Behavioral Economics in many fields such as financial markets, social economy organization and energy consumption.
