Falco Bargagli Stoffi

I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Harvard University.

Previously, I got a PhD in Economics and Data Science jointly at IMT School for Advanced Studies (Italy) and KU Leuven (Belgium). 


I am fascinated by the application of  statistical methods to social and health sciences and my research is at the intersection between causal inference and machine learning.

In particular, I study methods to improve public and private interventions in a rampantly heterogeneous world. 

Before the PhD, I got degrees in Statistics and Sociology at the University of Florence (Italy) and I have been a City Councillor.
