Francesco Loiacono

Ciao and welcome to my website!

I am a PhD candidate in Economics at the Institute for International Economic Studies (IIES) at Stockholm University. I study private firms and labor markets in lower-income countries. Prior to joining the IIES, I worked in Uganda, Nigeria and Senegal for several years, shaping my research interests and learning how to conduct and use experiments to answer to economics questions. For more information, please see my CV.

I am proud member of the Naguru East Coast Boxing Club.

I will join the Office of the Chief Economist at the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development as a Principal Economist from September 2023.
