Profile

Mauro joined the CCRI in 2015. He was previously a researcher at the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre and at the University of Milan. Mauro is an applied economist, with experience in econometric analysis, survey design and primary data collection.

He has worked on the political economy of food standards, the economics of agricultural biotechnologies and agricultural labour. His current research interests are agricultural policies, farm productivity, risk management, supply chain arrangements and technology adoption. More specifically, Mauro’s main areas of interest concern the impact of sustainable innovation and risk management practices on farm productivity, how the adoption of agricultural technologies and supply chain arrangements affects farms’ sustainability and household food security and agricultural policy evaluation. Mauro is currently CCRI principal investigator for the H2020 project SURE-Farm and he is working on the H2020 SUFISA project, as well as undertaking a number of projects for the EU Commission and UN FAO.
