Biographical note

I am assistant professor of Economics. I joined Bocconi after completing my PhD in Economics at the London School of Economics.


Research interests

I am an applied microeconomist with interests in Development, Organizational and Behavioral Economics. My research explores the interplay between norms, institutions and identity in explaining differences in labor market outcomes between groups and in affecting firms’ productivity. I use a variety of research methods, such as field experiments and survey-based techniques, and frequently collaborates with organizations in both developed and developing countries. I worked on recruitment in public-sector frontline jobs, on female entrepreneurship in developing countries and on employee culture.
