Marco Tabellini received his PhD in economics from MIT in June 2018, and spent the academic year 2018-2019 as Postdoctoral Fellow at Harvard Business School, where he will join the Faculty in July 2019. Marco also holds a master and an undergraduate degree in economics and social sciences from Bocconi University. Marco studies the political and the economic effects of immigration. His research also seeks to understand which factors facilitate or hinder immigrant assimilation, how the presence of different ethnic groups in the society influences inter-group relations, and to what extent migration can be a tool to foster the political and the social integration of under-represented segments of the population. To answer these questions, Marco has focused on the early twentieth century US, which was characterized by the massive inflow of Europeans and by the first migration of African Americans from the rural South to the urban North of the US. More recently, Marco has also analyzed the effects of the second Great Migration of African Americans, between 1940 and 1970, investigating how this episode contributed to the development of the Civil Rights movement, both in the South and in the North of the United States.
