Starting in 2011 I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Policy Analysis and Public Management at Bocconi University, a Fellow of the Paolo Baffi Center, and a researcher at Dondena. In 2013 I have been awarded the Franco Modigliani fellowship by Unicredit & Universities Foundation, and a research grant by the Einaudi Institute for Economics and Finance. I am Associate Editor of the International Review of Law and Economics

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.
