Luigi Butera


My research focuses on the intersection of public economics, behavioral economics and experimental economics. My current work explores how information and uncertainty affect public goods investments, and how intermediary institutions can improve the functioning of charitable giving markets. I am also conducting experiments to understand the welfare consequences of leveraging image motivation to change people's behavior. Finally,  I am interested in the economics of doing economics: I am exploring mechanisms that can promote cooperation among social scientists and replications of experimental studies.

I began my studies at Bocconi University, where I received a B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Economics and Social Sciences. I have received my Ph.D. training in Economics at the Interdisciplinary Center for Economic Science, George Mason University and at the Gate Lab, CNRS, and I hold a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Lyon
