At the Global Policy Institute and at Zhejiang University, Michele conducts research on the latest hot topics relating to Chinese economy and society, two inseparable facets of the same coin. In cooperation with students and staff of both institutes, he has recently completed a study on the microcredit industry in China, offering practical recommendations to policy makers. Currently, his main research interest lies in unfolding the myth that Chinese individuals are high savers, how to grow the Chinese economy and how to find an optimum balance between agriculture, manufacturing and service industries. Renminbi exchange rate, impact on exports, migrations, rural finance, hukou, land-transfer and reforms of banking and stock exchange market are only a few of the inter-related topics of research.

He regularly participates in conferences and forums; recently, he has been invited to the China Summit organized by The Economist; the Global Think-Tank summit, organized by the China Centre for International Economic Exchange, Beijing (other spekaers included vice-premier Li Keqiang, Prof Yunus of Grameen Bank, Henry Kissinger, Romano Prodi).
