Nicola Bianchi received his PhD in Economics from Stanford University in 2015. He is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Strategy. Professor Bianchi's interests include the economics of education, innovation, and labor economics.
His current work focuses on several policy-relevant topics: the consequences of increased access to higher education, the relationship between scientific education and innovative activities, and the effect of compulsory licensing on invention.
In most of his research projects, Professor Bianchi exploits historical public policies to address economic questions that, although currently relevant, would be hard to tackle with only modern data.
