University of MilanPostdoctoral Research Fellow in EconomicsItaly

I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Economics at the University of Milan (formerly, a postdoc at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia), Fellow of the Marco Biagi Foundation, member of several scientific committees for ongoing programmes (e.g. Scientific Committee for the 2020 CEEDS Summer School in Machine Learning for Econometricians) and member of a number of regional and national survey committees in Italy.

I hold a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Milan (Italy) and an MA in Economics and Finance with First Class Honours from Heriot-Watt University (Edinburgh, UK).

I combine academic and research experience with a proven professional track record in key public and private sector organisations across the European continent (Eastern Europe, Denmark, UK), namely central banks (financial stability, regulation, macroprudential, systemic risk), commercial and investment banking (risk management and modelling, finance, transactions, anti-money laundering), pharma (project management, regulatory affairs and clinical statistics), relationship management, public policy as well as sustainable growth and investment projects for private entities.

Research-wise, I specialise in Health and Labour Economics, Gender Equality, Household Dynamics, Global Firms and Markets, International Trade and Labour Market Interactions. My expertise as an applied economist involves working with both primary and secondary data (time series, cross-sectional and longitudinal data) and state-of-the-art estimation techniques. Also, I have first-hand experience in survey tools, developing algorithms and dealing with regulatory and technical procedures for data collection and management.

My teaching experience includes courses in Econometrics, Labour Economics and Macroeconomics at undergraduate and postgraduate level (University of Milan, University of Modena and Reggio Emilia), as well as courses in the field of performance measurement, health economics, policy and management (Polytechnic University of Milan).

Lastly, I supervise students at undergraduate/postgraduate level, act as a discussant for doctoral students and review for Socio-Economic Review.
