I am co-organizing the 4th CRC Labor Workshop on August 30-31. The program is now available!

Welcome to my personal Web site! Here you can find information about my research and my professional activities.

In short: I am a researcher at ZEW (Leibniz Centre for European Economic Research) and at the University of Mannheim and a research fellow at IZA (Institute of Labor Economics) and at GLO (Global Labor Organization). I am also a member of the Bonn-Mannheim Collaborative Research Center TR 224 funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG), a member of the Greek National Minimum Wage Experts Committee, and a member of the Vfs Standing Field Committee on Macroeconomics. Previously I was a (tenured) economist at the Bank of Italy and an external lecturer at the European Business School.
