Matteo Ruzzante


I am a fourth year PhD Candidate in Economics at Northwestern University. Previously, I worked as a consultant at the World Bank’s Development Impact Evaluation (DIME) department.

I study technological innovation and economic development in low-income and historical settings, with a particular emphasis on agricultural technologies and rural markets. My research employs a combination of administrative, archival, geospatial, and survey data. I have participated in the design and implementation of large-scale field experiments and data collection in Mozambique and Ghana.
