Roberto Mazzoleni received his doctoral degree in Economics at Stanford University.

In addition to the introductory courses in economics, he teaches courses in intermediate microeconomics, law and economics, the economics of technical change, industrial economics, and government and business. He has a part-time teaching appointment at the School of International and Public Affairs at Columbia University, where he teaches a course on science, technology, and economic growth. Roberto's research interests focus on processes of technological and institutional change. He is currently involved in an international research project concerned with the process of catch-up by developing economies. His primary objective is to investigate the history of the contributions made by universities and other institutions of higher education to industrial development. In other recent research, he has been concerned with the economic analysis of patents and their effects on the transfer of technology from universities to industry.
