I am available 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; Behavioral economics.
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.
Some tips for the development of a thesis are available HERE.
Before approaching me for supervision, please consider that:
I appreciate if you come to me with some ideas about the thesis. A non-exclusive list of possible topics for a thesis is available HERE.
Familiarity with basic Econometrics and a statistical package (preferably R or Stata) is required. I suggest you to contact me only provided that you have passed an Econometrics exam with a reasonably high mark (above 25/30).
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 contact me well in advance, and beware that I may be unable to supervise you.
My theses are relatively demanding. Usually, developing with me a bachelor's thesis takes two months full time, while developing a master's thesis takes three months full time. Take it into account!
It may happen that you plan to graduate in one session, but eventually you are unable to make it. No problem: We will work together to meet the subsequent session. However, if you are also unable to graduate in the subsequent session, I will no longer supervise your work.
