Maria Carnovale

Adjunct Lecturer


Maria Carnovale is an economist interested in policies for economic development and sustainability. Her research tackles policy issues that arise when institutions have unequal power and focuses on the redistributive effects of common development policies and labor or environmental standards when production is outsourced and when firms operate in oligopolistic markets. It contributes to three fields: International Political Economy; Industrial Organization; Global Value Chain Analysis. Within this intersection she examines the institutional constraints to economic development created by global markets. She received her PhD in Public Policy from Duke University in 2019 and holds a Master in Public Policy (Duke) and a Master in Economics (Bocconi).
