Mario Pezzino


Personal profile


Mario joined Manchester in September 2009 as Lecturer in Industrial Economics.

He teaches Microeconomics 3 and he is a Principal Fellow of AdvanceHE.

Mario currently serves as Director of Teaching and Learning of the School of Social Sciences and Humanities INTO Link Tutor.

Research interests

Mario's research interests lie generally in applied microeconomic theory and industrial organization.
In particular specific areas are
(1) theories and applications of horizontal and vertical product differentiation
(2) industrial organization of hospitals and the pharmaceutical market
(3) evolutionary games and applications
(4) economics of vocation and intrinsic motivation


I am keen to supervise students interested in any aspect of Industrial Organization.

I have studied the evolutionary effects of the introduction of Pay-for-Performance schemes when agents are intrinsically motivated. Currently, I am studying the evolutionary effects of tax reforms on the propensity of economic agents to engage in tax evasion.

I am also interested in hospital competition, financial incentives in the health care sector and related regulatory issues.
