Marco Pangallo

Doctoral Student

Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford


Marco Pangallo has a BSc in Physics and an MSc in Physics of Complex Systems from the University of Turin. At the same time, he studied Economics at the Scuola di Studi Superiori and Collegio Carlo Alberto in Turin. He did his Master thesis at the Centre d'analyse et de mathematique sociales (CAMS) in Paris, working on a model of the housing market and its implications for spatial income segregation, under the supervision of Professors Jean-Pierre Nadal,  Pietro Terna and Annick Vignes.

He is currently studying for a DPhil at the Mathematical Institute of the University of Oxford under the supervision of Professor Doyne Farmer, with an affiliation with the Complexity Economics group of INET Oxford. He is a member of St Cross College and is supported both by INET and an EPSRC award.He has broad interests in Economics, both from a theoretical (he employs Agent-Based simulations and analytical tools from Statistical Physics) and an empirical point of view. He is interested in combining the burgeoning field of Machine Learning with techniques from Econometrics. He believes that thinking of the economy as a complex systems can provide unprecedented insights.
