Dr. Baggio holds a BA in Economic and Social Sciences from the University of Milan Bicocca (2005), a Master's in Development Economics (2007), and a Ph.D. in International Development (2011) from the University of East Anglia, which was funded by the UK Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).  He then worked as a postdoctoral research associate with the Center for Behavior, Institutions and the Environment (CBIE) at Arizona State University.  He is a member of the Resilience Alliance Young Scholars (RAYS) group. 

Dr. Baggio's research focuses on analyzing and modeling social-ecological systems.  In order to do this, his main research interests can be divided into two macro areas.  One focuses on the conditions under which collective action succeeds in human societies, analyzing what drives collective action and how it is influenced by uncertainty.  The other centers upon social-ecological networks, characterizing inter-dependencies between biodiversity, food, water, energy and decision making.
