Members of the Lab carry out research in applied mathematics. They are computer scientists, statisticians, theoretical economists and theoretical physicists who are Bocconi faculty members or close collaborators. 
Seven ERC grants have been awarded to the Lab faculty members. 

The Lab hosts researchers from other universities and research centers through conferences, workshops and visiting positions. PostDocs, PhD students and interns are a vital component of the Lab.
