My research spans several topics in the economic analysis of torts, with particular attention to the role of institutions and the law in monitoring and deterring illegal behaviors and dishonesty.

I am currently conducting experimental research on different topics: tax evasion, vote buying, dishonest leadership, corruption.

I am also conducting theoretical analyses on civil and criminal liability, and empirical research on judicial performance.
