Simone Arrigoni

PhD Candidate, Economics




Doctoral Thesis Summary

In my PhD thesis I study what are the drivers of wealth and income inequality within countries, with a particular focus on the international macroeconomics dynamics, and the related implications for the macroeconomy.


I am a PhD Candidate in Economics at Trinity College Dublin under the supervision of Agustín Bénétrix and Davide Romelli. I am affiliated with the IM-TCD (International Macro) research unit. Before joining Trinity, I was first a trainee and then worked as an analyst in the International Policy Analysis division at the European Central Bank. I hold a Master's degree in Economics from Heidelberg University and a Bachelor’s degree in Economics & Business from University of Milano-Bicocca.
