Marco Bardoscia

Senior Research Economist – Research Hub


Marco Bardoscia has a Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics and has been previously affiliated with the University of Zurich, with the London Institute for Mathematical Sciences, and with ICTP. He has studied the behaviour of complex systems, focusing recently on systemic risk and on the stability of financial networks. 

Previously he has studied phase transitions in finance (in the context of Arbitrage Pricing Theory), in general equilibrium models of economies, and in social networks. He has a broader scientific interest in applications of statistical physics (socio-economic systems, computational problems, and metabolic networks) and in new developments in blockchain-related technologies.
