Professor Massimiliano Tani Bertuol is an Academic in the School of Business at UNSW, Canberra.
I am an economist by training and my research is applied. My interest focuses on human capital at large: how to foster it, its efficient international transfer through temporary and permanent migration, and its effects on productivity, innovation, and economic growth at a firm or national level. I often use Australian data but work with data on Europe, the US, Africa and China.
I teach/taught macroeconomics as well as finance at both undergraduate and graduate level in face-to-face and distance mode. My education includes a PhD in Economics from the Australian National University (Canberra, Australia), a MSc Econ from the LSE and Laurea from Bocconi University (Milan, Italy).
