Alessandro
Citanna

Professor of Economics

PhD, University of Pennsylvania, 1995
MS, Bocconi University, 1988

Alessandro Citanna got his Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Pennsylvania, with a specialization in Finance from the Wharton School. Before joining Yeshiva University as a tenured full professor, he has held positions at several universities, including the McGill University School of Commerce (Montreal, Canada), the Carnegie Mellon University Tepper School of Business (Pittsburgh, PA), and HEC Paris (France). He has been visiting the Columbia University Graduate School of Business in New York for many years, since 2003.

Dr. Citanna's core research interests lie in economic theory. His research is based on a systemic, general equilibrium approach to economic problems. He applies mathematical methods to study both macro and microeconomic issues, including the economics of financial markets. His recent research has determined the validity of some computational methods used in macroeconomics and finance, and has studied the design of matching and insurance markets in the presence of frictions such as adverse selection.
