Paolo Postiglione is a Professor of Economic Statistics at “G. d’Annunzio” University of Chieti-Pescara (from May 2017). Previously he was an Associate Professor and an Assistant Professor at “G. d’Annunzio” University of Chieti-Pescara. He also held a position as Statistical Officer at Ministry of Transports and Navigation in staff position of the Head of Human Resources (1996 - 2001).

He is the Dean of the Master Degree course in Economics and Business Analytics (CLEBA) from 2018.

He is a member of the European Union - Regional Economics Applications Laboratory (EU-REAL), a research net in regional science.

He has been a visiting researcher at Regional Economics Applications Laboratory of University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, at Regional Research Institute of West Virginia University.

Currently, he is an Associate Editor of Statistical Methods and Applications (Springer) and the Principal Investigator for University “G. d’Annunzio” of Chieti- Pescara for the Horizon 2020 Project “Integrative Mechanisms for Addressing Spatial Justice and Territorial Inequalities in Europe” (IMAJINE), H2020-SC6-REV-INEQUAL-2016. Please visit the IMAJINE web-site for further details.

His research interests mainly concern regional quantitative analysis, spatial statistics and econometrics, regional economic convergence, models for spatial non-stationary data, agricultural statistics, and spatial sampling. He is author of a book edited by Springer, many articles on peer review journals and other publications on these topics.
