Dr. Gianfranco Piras, Associate Professor, Department of Economics has been named co-Editor of the Spatial Economic Analysis one of the leading field journals in spatial economics. The journal is published by Taylor and Francis and Dr. Piras' achievement is the culmination of a very competitive application process. Spatial Economic Analysis is "a pioneering economics journal dedicated to the development of theory and methods in spatial economics. A spatial perspective is more relevant than ever to our understanding of economic and geographical phenomena, both globally and at the scale of neighborhoods, cities and regions. Differences in economic performance at these scales are topical subjects for intellectual enquiry and have long been the focus of policy initiatives by national, regional and local governments.”
