I am happy to supervise undergraduate, graduate and PhD theses from the University of Verona involving applied Econometrics, preferably in one of the following broad areas:
Households' saving and portfolio decisions
Economics of risk and uncertainty
Policy impact evaluation
A non-exclusive list of possible topics for a thesis is available HERE.
In general, I believe it is mutually useful if the topic of the thesis fits my research interests. For this reason I recommend to have a look at my "research" pages and the titles of the theses I supervised in the past.
Before approaching me for supervision, please consider that:
Familiarity with basic Econometrics and a statistical package (Stata, Gretl, R, ...) is required. I suggest you to contact me provided that you have passed an Econometrics exam with at least a fair mark (24/30).
For some reason I attract quite a few students interested in my supervision of their theses. However, supervising many students at the same time is burdensome for me and ineffective for the students, as I will not have enough time for each. Please verify that I am not already supervising ten or more undergraduate/graduate students at the same time.
My theses are relatively demanding. On average, developing with me a bachelor's thesis takes two months, while developing a master's thesis takes four months. Take it into account!
