Twitter: @GiorgiaConte95





I am a PhD candidate in Economics at Trinity College Dublin. I enrolled in September 2021 and was awarded the Provost Scholarship. I hold a Master's degree in Economics from Barcelona Graduate School of Economics (BGSE) and a Bachelor's degree in Economics and Social Sciences from Bocconi University. During my PhD studies I have been working part time as a consultant for the World Bank Group (WBG).
Before joining Trinity, I worked as a Research Analyst in the Malta Financial Services Authority (MFSA) and as an economic trainee with the European Central Bank (ECB).

Research Interests

My research interests consist of building and solving quantitative macroeconomic models using micro data to address questions on inequality, demographics, the labor market outcomes and family policies. Within my projects, I work extensively with administrative data from the Danish Register.

Working Papers

"Quantifying the gift of time: the distributional effects of parental leave policies of fertility and child's development " (2023).

Work in Progress

"DynIrl: Evaluating Dynamic Macroeconomic Policies Under Ageing Population in Ireland"
