Profile

      Dr. Arianna Rotulo works as Assistant Professor at the University of Groningen – Campus Fryslan. She got her PhD from Queen Mary University of London in May 2022 with a research project on the effects of fiscal decentralization on equitable access to healthcare services.

      Arianna combines econometrics, economic geography, and the political economy of health to understand the role of healthcare services in the distribution and development of avoidable healthcare disparities. Currently she is interested in interdisciplinary research on health systems preparedness, international health governance, and degrowth. Arianna also coordinates the Global Equity and Resilient Health Systems course and teaches Principles of Economics, Statistics, and Research Methods at Campus Fryslan.

      Arianna is part of an international team based at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, working on the project ‘IMF and Health Care Reforms in Europe’, funded by ELIDEK.

     Between 2021 and 2022 Arianna acted as a consultant to the San Gallicano Institute on how to improve the welfare of the vulnerable population of Rome, within the Mi.Fa.Bene project, involving the Municipality of Rome, the Italian Ministry of Interior, and the European Commission.
