Renato Faccini is a Lecturer in economics at Queen Mary University of London.
His research interest is in macroeconomics, but most of his work has focused on search and matching theory applied to business cycle dynamics and labour market institutions. He has written articles on the determinants of unemployment fluctuations and on the long-term effects of temporary contracts. Recently, his research has investigated the role of hiring and investment frictions for inflation dynamics and the magnitude of international fiscal policy spillovers.
Renato joined Queen Mary after working for three years at the Bank of England. He received his PhD from the European University Institute in 2009.
