I am Assistant Professor in Economics at the Department of Policy Analysis and Public Management of Bocconi University and the Coordinator of Fondazione Rodolfo Debenedetti. I am also Fellow of the Paolo Baffi Center, where I coordinate the research unit CLEAN on the economic analysis of crime, and a Researcher at Dondena Center for Research on Social Dynamics. In 2013 I have been awarded the Franco Modigliani Fellowship by Unicredit & Universities Foundation.
Before joining Bocconi I got a Ph.D. in economics from Universitat Pompeu Fabra in 2009 and I worked at the research department of the Bank of Italy from 2007 to 2011. I am mainly interested in applied econometrics, political economy, economics of crime, and immigration.
