Olivier Giovannoni, currently visiting lecturer at the Department of Economics at the University of Texas at Austin. In 2006 he was a post-doctoral fellow at the LBJ School of Public Affairs

He holds a Ph.D. in economics from the University of Nice, France. His Ph.D. dissertation is titled "Distribution, Growth and Economic Policies-The case of the United States."

The international committee awarded him a summa cum laude award, and I benefited from a 4-year teaching fellowship and a 3-year research grant (best awards in France).

He is mostly interested in teaching and conducting research on macroeconomics and international economics/finance, whether it be theoretical, empirical or in terms of economic policies. He specializes in growth theories, income distribution (inequality and wages/profits) and international comparisons.
