Dr. Citanna is an economic theorist with focus on general equilibrium theory and its applications (financial economics, quantitative methods, macroeconomics, information economics and market design). He currently works on the relation between collateralized debt and rational bubbles, with the idea of refining our understanding of the roots of the financial crisis of 2007-2008. He also works on the design of competitive markets, especially insurance and credit markets, where participants interact under informational asymmetries and where consumers may be subject to present bias and other behavioral frictions.
He is Co-Editor of the Journal of Mathematical Economics. He has held positions at Columbia University, HEC-Paris, Carnegie Mellon University, and at Yeshiva University in New York City. He has taught microeconomics and managerial economics for years at the undergraduate, MSc, PhD and MBA level in several institutions including Columbia Business School.
