Salome Baslandze

Salome BaslandzeISET is proud to congratulate Salome Baslandze, an ISET graduate of 2011, on her recent appointment as an Assistant Professor of Economics at the Einaudi Institute for Economics and Finance (EIEF) in Rome.  
After graduation from ISET, she received her Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Pennsylvania, and this year was one of the winners of Economics Day 2016 at PSU which helped towards her appointment at the Einaudi Institute. She is now continuing her research on growth, technological change, firm dynamics, and the dynamics of innovation in Rome.
Salome was able to secure this exciting new position through the Economics Job Market, a non-profit organisation. The hiring process was extremely competitive and required several stages of review and a number of interviews. She first interviewed for the job while attending a meeting of the American Economic Association (AEA) in Boston, Massachusetts this year, and later had the opportunity to visit the EIEF to meet the staff there and give a sample lecture.
The Einaudi Institute for Economics and Finance is a new research institute, funded by the Bank of Italy. The Institute builds on the tradition of its predecessor, the Ente Luigi Einaudi, which fostered economic research in Italy for the past fifty years. The EIEF produces world-class research with an emphasis on policy-related topics. It also seeks to influence public thinking and to train the next generation of scholars by running a series of high-quality seminars, graduate level courses and conferences.
ISET would like to congratulate Salome for her impressive accomplishments and wish her luck in her future endeavours.
