Welcome to Federico !
Federico D’Onofrio, a former student of Scuola Normale Superiore, received a B.A. in Philosophy of Science, an M.A. in Philosophy from the University of Pisa. He received a Master in Quantitative Methods for Economics from CORIPE Piemonte in 2008. He was a post-doc at Yale University department of political science and a visiting fellow of the Agrarian Studies Program at Yale University in 2013. In 2014 and 2015, he was post-doctoral fellow at the Center for the History of Economic Thought of Duke University.
Much of D’Onofrio’s research explores the relationship between data collection and policy-making. He investigated the collection of economic data in eighteenth century Naples and twentieth century Italy. His forthcoming book describes the connection between empirical work, theory, and ideology of agricultural economists in early twentieth century Italy. His current project is dedicated to the agricultural statistics of the League of Nations and of the International Institute of Agriculture.
D’Onofrio research on grain trade in eighteenth century Naples triggered his interest into the TOFLIT project. His contribution to TOFLIT will deal with the series of imports, exports and prices of grains in eighteenth century France.
