Marco Valente

Marco Valente earned a degree in Statistics and Economics in Rome, and studied in Manchester and Aalborg, where he completed a PhD in Economics in 2000. He is currently an Associate Professor at the University of L’Aquila, where he teaches Microeconomics to undergraduate students and Industrial Economics in the Master program. He also teaches regularly agent-based computational models in several European graduate programs. For more than 20 years he used innovative computational models as a means to study economic phenomena, ranging from micro-economic issues (consumer theory, complexity and organizational theory), industrial economics (market dynamics, technological innovation and environmental economics) and macroeconomic phenomena (growth and structural change). Besides his contributions to Evolutionary Economic theory, Prof. Valente developed both methodological and technical tools aimed at promoting the rigorous use of agent-based simulation models.
