Welcome to my webpage!

I study the forces behind institutions and organizations using economic and legal analysis. I am particularly interested in natural and field experiments.
I have received my Ph.D. in Law and Economics from the Erasmus University Rotterdam, the University of Bologna, and Hamburg University (2013). 

I read Law at the University of Manchester (LL.M., 2009) and at Bocconi University (Laurea, 2006; M.Sc., 2008).

One of my favorite views: Venice, The Doge's Palace and the riva degli schiavoni, painted by Canaletto (1697-1768). This painting today is at the National Gallery of London.
