Orestis Troumpounis

I am an Associate Professor in the University of Padova in Italy. I am also affiliated with the University of Lancaster where I previously worked full time. I also had the chance to work in Carlos III in Madrid. I received my PhD in 2011 from Universidad Autonoma de Barcelona.

My research is on political economy and public economics combining knowledge from economics and political science and I have published in journals of both disciplines.
