Riccardo Colacito models the econometrics of large systems of asset returns. He also studies the optimal behavior of monetary authorities amid model uncertainty and explains the joint behavior of international stock markets and the rate of the depreciation of the U.S. dollar.

His research has been published and is under revision in peer reviewed journals, including the Journal of Business and Economic Statistics and the Journal of Money Credit and Banking.

Because of the broad range of his research topics, he has been invited to present his work to research conferences, business schools, economics departments and central banks in Europe and the United States.

He has been visiting scholar at the University of California, San Diego on several occasions.

He received his PhD in economics from New York University. He grew up in Italy, where he received bachelor’s and master’s degrees in economics from Bocconi University.
