Luigi Pistaferri is a Professor of Economics at Stanford University
and a research fellow of EIEF, NBER, CEPR, IZA, and SIEPR. His papers, published in all top 5 journals
in Economics, are on the intersection between labor economics and
macroeconomics. Pistaferri holds a PhD in Economics from University
College, London, and a Doctorate in Economic Sciences from IUN in
Naples (Italy), where he was born in 1968 and where he lived until
1993. Pistaferri is one of the co-editors of the American
Economic Review and an associate editor of various
economics journals. He joined Stanford University in 1999 after
finishing his PhD and has been a member of the faculty ever since,
with the exception of one year sabbatical spent at EIEF in Rome.
Pistaferri lives in Stanford with his wife Marina and their three
children Isabella, Bianca and Antonio. In his (increasingly scarce)
spare time, he enjoys watching movies, playing guitar, reading
history, running, and (especially) supporting his soccer team Napoli.
