Fabrizio joined the School of Government and Public Policy in 2012. Before moving to Glasgow he was a Marie Curie postdoctoral researcher at the University of Zurich and a Premier Assistant at the Institut d'études politiques et internationales, University of Lausanne. He completed his PhD at the University of Exeter in 2010.
A revised version of his PhD thesis on policy diffusion has been recently published by the ECPR press. Focusing on regulatory impact as a case study, this book shows how the OECD transnational networks have framed and diffused such a policy innovation, but there is a limited extent of policy interdependence in the implementation and evaluation stages. More information can be found at the publisher's website.
