Stefano Baratuche

Ph.D. Candidate, Economics

Princeton University


My research evaluates the impact of financial regulation and the introduction of novel financial technology products on the cost and availability of external funds in developing economies. Throughout my Ph.D., I have acquired an in-depth knowledge of Causal Inference and Empirical Industrial Organization methodology to model multi-sided markets and estimate demand systems for credit and other products.

To deploy these tools, I have collaborated with fellow researchers and partnered with industry leaders and central banks. I have 8+ years of experience in economic modeling and programming (e.g. Python, R).

I have enjoyed teaching numerous courses at Princeton University and UTDT. In addition, I advised students working on their junior thesis in the Princeton Economics department.
