Personal page


 

Welcome to my home page!

I am Associate Professor of Public Economics at Bocconi University and member of the Dondena Research Center on Social Dynamics and Public Policy, where I coordinated the Welfare state and taxation unit between 2014 and 2018.

I am Research Fellow at CESifo Munich and member of the Scientific Advisory Council of the Ifo Institute. I am research fellow at Centro Studi Luca D'Agliano Milan, and I am Associated Expert of ENEGE, the European Network of Experts on Gender Equality. I am also a member of the Gender Committee of the Italian Economic Association.

I am treasurer and member of the editorial board of www.lavoce.info

My current research interests and projects fall in four broad areas: Gender gaps; Migration policy; Public policy, parental time allocation and intergenerational transmission of skills; tax structure and the macroeconomy.

These research interests largely reflect my work and areas of research in the last years, with some twist....

Here you can find some more information about my research, my teaching and my media contributions.
