Professor Lancieri holds a J.S.D. and an LL.M. from the University of Chicago Law School, a Master’s in Economics from INSPER, and an LL.B. from FGV Direito São Paulo (both located in Sao Paulo, Brazil). Before joining academia, Professor Lancieri worked as an antitrust and technology regulation lawyer in Sao Paulo and Brussels.

Professor Lancieri’s research focuses on understanding how governments shape markets and, in turn, how markets shape governments. He mainly covers two connected areas. The first is antitrust and regulatory policy, emphasizing the political, economic, and legal determinants of enforcement actions and regulatory change. The second is the governance of digital markets, where he focuses on designing competition, data privacy, content moderation, and other policies that accomplish their stated goals. His work is both interdisciplinary and comparative in its orientation, investigating how changes in legal regimes shape economic incentives and the on-the-ground behavior of market agents and regulators. In the process, he collaborates with legal scholars, economists, data and political scientists in research projects that employ methods ranging from traditional legal analysis to carefully identified empirical projects.

Professor Lancieri’s work has been published in leading law and peer-reviewed journals. He is also a Fellow at the Stigler Center at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, an Associate Editor of the Journal of Competition Law and Economics and was one of the lead organizers and a co-author of the Stigler Report on Digital Platforms. Overall, his work has been mentioned by The Economist, Politico, The New York Times, the Washington Post, Bloomberg, Fox Business, and the 2020 Economic Report of the President (among others).
