Welcome to my homepage!


I am Giuseppe Maggio, I hold a PhD in Economics from LUISS Guido Carli University. Currently I am Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the School of Global Studies, University of Sussex. I am interested in development economics, trust, conflict, environmental and, more in general, micro-applied. I divide my life between Brighton and Palermo, where I was born in 1986.

Since January 2017 I am Investigator on two projects funded by the Economic and Social Research Council of the United Kingdom. The first project will address the effect of conflict activity on the probability and quality of entrepreneaurship in Sub-Saharan Africa. The second project will study the advantages and drawbacks of real-time social media data on conflict,
by sistematically comparing them with classical conflict data, focusing on Kenya 2017 elections. 

Among my previous activities:
-Economist at the Agricultural Development Economics division of FAO - United Nations;
