About Marco

I am an Associate Professor of economics at the University of Queensland, in Brisbane, Australia.

My main field of interest lies at the intersection between experimental and political economics. I apply experimental methods, in the lab, online, and in the field to study various social and political issues. I am mostly interested in voting, an area which I have also studied theoretically and empirically.

I received my Ph.D. from the University of Edinburgh and worked at the University of St Andrews before moving to UQ.

I currently hold two grants from the Australian Research Council:

ARC Discovery Project to study information acquisition and voting behavior, with Haishan Yuan and Carlos Pimienta (DP190102629);

ARC Discovery Project to explore voting behavior, polarisation, and social preferences, with Vera te Velde (DP220102533).
