Stefano Carattini is an Assistant Professor in Economics in the Andrew Young School of Policy Studies at Georgia State University.
He is an environmental economist with broader interests in behavioral economics, public economics, and political economy. His research combines policy evaluation, to examine how policies work, with analyses of their political economy, including questions of asset stranding and transition risk. He has also been working on cooperative (pro-social) behavior and the diffusion of green behaviors, practices, and technologies.
He has published in both general science journals such as Nature and Science as well as leading journals in economics, such as the Review of Economics and Statistics, the Journal of Environmental Economics and Management, and the Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization. Since 2015 he has raised about $2 million in external funding.
He is one of the recipients of the Heinz König Young Scholar Award, delivered by the Mannheim Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW). Prior to joining Georgia State, he was an Associate Research Scientist at Yale University, where he was also a Lecturer in the School of Public Health.
