View profile

Antonio Aloisi is Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow and Assistant Professor of European and Comparative Labour Law at IE Law School. Prior to joining IE University, he was a Max Weber Postdoctoral Fellow at the European University Institute (EUI), Florence. He holds a doctorate in business and social law (2018) from Bocconi University, Milan, where he also taught at the School of Law and in the second-cycle degree course in Law of Internet Technology.

His research focuses on the impact of digital technologies on labour regulation and social institutions. Funded by the EU H2020 Research Program, the aim of his current two-year “Boss Ex Machina” project is to map practices of algorithmic decision-making and untangle the technological transformation of managerial prerogatives in workplaces driven by machines, artificial intelligence and platforms.

Antonio was a visiting researcher at the Saint Louis University and worked on a long-term policy framework for school reform at the Italian Ministry of Education. He has been involved in various projects on non-standard forms of employment, platform work, and collective rights, commissioned by international institutions and research centres. He has authored several articles, book chapters and op-eds, and his research has been cited by policy documents.
