Staff Profile:Dr Giacomo Zanello

Name:
Dr Giacomo Zanello
Job Title:
Lecturer in Food Economics and Health
Responsibilities:
  • Module convenor for Qualitative Research Methods (APME40).
  • Supporting role for Econometrics (APME71), Resource and Environmental Economics (APME58) and Individual Project (AP1EX1 and AP3EX2).
Areas of Interest:

My current research interests include:

  • Food, nutrition and health: I am involved in work that sits at the intersection of food, nutrition and health primarily in low- and middle-income contexts. This includes the analysis of energy expenditure patterns of rural households, investigation of economic drivers of over- and under-nutrition, food and nutrition policy evaluation, and the role of agriculture and food systems in enabling better nutrition and health.
  • Innovation, technology, and industrialisation: I investigate the innovation rich environment of low-income countries aiming to understand the diffusion and impacts of tech- and no-tech innovations.
  • Role of transaction costs in rural agricultural markets: I am interested in better capturing and quantifying the transaction costs that limit the size of agricultural markets in low-income countries.

I look forward to Ph.D. applications from applied economists broadly interested in such topics and eager to develop robust empirical research aimed at strong policy implications.
