Academic profile

Marco Felici is a PhD Candidate at the University of Cambridge (Department of Land Economy and Darwin College). His research spans household finance, housing, subjective well-being and mental health.

Research interests

In his PhD thesis, Marco explored how housing tenure transitions can be framed as events from a statistical perspective, and what the implications are for studying the consequences of housing tenure. The thesis focuses on three outcomes: portfolio choice, mental health and voting behaviour. More broadly, Marco’s research is concerned with households and individuals, studying questions in housing, household finance, subjective well-being and mental health and combining theory insights from the broader social sciences with modern empirical methods.
