Carla Guerriero is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Economics and Statistics (DISES) at the University of Naples Federico II. She is also an Honorary Research Fellow in Health Economics at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) and Research Fellow of the Center for Studies in Economics and Finance (CSEF). Carla’s research interests focus on three main themes: the measurement of health and wellbeing in children from the child’s perspective, studying the role of children in the family using a collective household model approach, and the economic evaluation of environmental health interventions targeting children. She is currently PI of CHILDROLE, an interdisciplinary research project involving children (aged 4-19 years) and their families. The main objective of CHILDROLE is to investigate whether children’s preferences regarding their own health risks influences family decisions. Carla is also coinvestigator of a research project promoting sustainable mobility through monetary incentives (BiketoWork) and consultant for the Government of Georgia to promote interventions aimed at reducing air pollution exposure for children at school.
After graduating in Economics at the University of Naples Federico II, Carla took an MSc in Health Economics at the LSE and a Ph.D at the LSHTM. Whenever possible, Carla works as volunteer for the Sea Turtle Protection Agency in Greece Archelon.
