Pier Paolo Creanza
Ph.D. Candidate in Economics
I'm a PhD candidate in Economics at Princeton University, and affiliated with the Industrial Relations Section. My interests lie primarily within applied microeconomics, especially topics in Labor, Public and Historical Economics. My work in progress focuses on scientific productivity and innovation.
My first publication, "Institutions, trade and growth: the ancient Greek case of proxenia", is forthcoming on the Journal of Economic History.
Last May, I presented my paper "Returning brains: tax incentives, migration and scientific productivity" at the 2023 Annual Meeting of the Society of Labor Economits (SOLE) in Philadelphia.
Last July, I partook in NBER's Innovation Research Boot Camp 2023.
