Topics of interest

technology and social change, evolution of technology, diffusion of technology, research policy and technology

My main passion is evolution of technology and technometrics. My philosophy of science is “Vere scire est per causas scire” (Really know through the cause). The goal of my scientific research is to make statistical analyses, models, do experiments, and conduct observational studies that illuminate the evolutionary properties of technology in society, processes of coevolution between technologies, and the measurement of technological advances over time and space. I have been research fellow at the Max Planck Institute of Economics and visiting professor at the Polytechnics of Torino and University of Piemonte Orientale (Italy). I have conducted research work at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Yale University, United Nations University-Maastricht Economic and Social Research Institute on Innovation and Technology (UNU-MERIT), RAND Corporation (Washington D.C.), University of Maryland (College Park), Bureau d’Économie Théorique et Appliquée (Strasbourg), Munk School of Global Affairs (University of Toronto), and Institute for Science and Technology Studies (University of Bielefeld). I lead the CocciaLAB at ASU & CNR to investigate, with interdisciplinary scientific researches the determinants of socioeconomic phenomena, such as terrorism, war, crime, violence, new technology, evolution of scientific fields, economic growth, human progress, etc. I have published many papers on technology and social change in leading international journals such as Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, Technological Forecasting and Social Change, Technovation- The International Journal of Technological Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Technology Management, Energy Policy, Scientometrics, R & D Management, etc.
