Welcome to my homepage
I am Assistant Professor (RTDa) of Economics at the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, within the Faculty of Finance, Banking and Insurance.
I am also an external fellow of the Center for European Studies (within University of Milan-Bicocca). In the past, I have been teaching for Università degli Studi di Milano (Italy) and ESSCA (France) various courses on economics & finance at the graduate level.
