Dr. Cesare Fracassi joins the institute as its first director of Economic Research, and chief economist. Before joining Coinbase, he was an associate professor of finance at the McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas at Austin, where he was the Director of the Blockchain Initiative and the Fintech Research Lab.
