Short Bio

Currently, I am a MRes student in Economics at the London School of Economics and Political Science. 

Before coming to London, I studied at the Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies and the University of Pisa, not too far from the famous Leaning Tower. 

During my studies I had the opportunity to travel a lot. In 2011 I took part to an exchange program at the École Normale Supérieure de la rue d’Ulm. In 2010 I went to Brasil with my University colleagues, while the year before I spent one month at the Chongqing University.

Between March and June 2013 I was an intern at the Center for Adaptive Behavior and Cognition at the Max Planck Institute for Human Behavior in Berlin, where I worked on a team researching decision making and social influence.

My main topics of interest are related to experimental and behavioral economics. For more on that see below.

Research Interests

Behavioral and experimental economics, development, entrepreneurship, risk taking behavior and intertemporal preferences.

I have experience in laboratory experiments about imitation in risk taking and social influence in cultural-products choices.
I am currently working on a project about the perseverance and imagination of entrepreneurs, based on an online-survey methodology.

Recently I have been also studying frontier approaches in Economic History for the evaluation of people’s basic numerical capabilities.
