I am a Teaching Fellow and PhD candidate at the CEP and London School of Economics and Political Science. I received my MSc in Economics from Bocconi University and my BSc in Economics and Finance from Luiss University. My research focuses on International Trade, Labour economics and Political Economics.

Current Areas of Research:

International trade and Labour Economics - I am interested in the interaction between firms and workers; more specifically, my research aims to understand how different types of workers, managers and the organisation of the firm play a role in explaining different margins of firm performance, ranging from export to productivity.

Political Economics - I do research on the dynamics of voting behaviour to understand how different levels of turnout determine political representation and policy outcomes.
