prof. Giuliano Masiero

Giuliano Masiero is associate professor of Economics at the University of Bergamo. He holds a PhD in Economics from the University of York (UK), a doctorate in Economics from the University of Ancona, and the national scientific qualification to full professor (in public economics). He is currently teaching health and public economics, and market regulation in undergraduate, graduate and doctoral courses, and collaborating with the University of Lugano (USI). He published several scientific papers in the main health economics and policy journals. The main research areas are health and public economics, with a particular focus on regulation and policy aspects, through the application of econometric methods. Particular attention has been devoted to the investigation of primary care markets, antibiotic consumption and bacterial resistance, patient and doctor behaviour, efficiency in long-term care, and more recently antidepressant drugs and mental health, the economic effects of earthquakes and the effects of air pollution and environmental shocks on health. Some research projects benefited from the financial support of the European Commission and the Swiss National Science Foundation (FNS).
