About me

Salvatore Morelli is Associate Professor in Public Economics at the University of “Roma Tre” - Law department - and he is Senior Scholar at the Stone Center on Socio-Economic Inequality in New York where he is Director of the GC Wealth project. His research interests center around the measurement, determinants, and consequences of income and wealth distribution as well as the economics of income and wealth taxation. A number of his recent research projects focus on the role of intergenerational wealth transfers and its taxation in shaping wealth distribution, and around several methodological issues for the estimation of personal wealth concentration (mostly using inheritance tax data and survey data). More recently, his ongoing research is also focused on understanding the interconnection between economic inequality and CO2 emissions. 

Salvatore holds a M.Sc. in Economics at the LSE and a D.Phil. in Economics at the University of Oxford, completed in October 2013. His work has appeared in leading public economics journals such as the Journal of Public Economics, the Journal of Economic Inequality, and Fiscal Studies.
