Short Bio

Currently, I am a PhD candidate in Economics at the London School of Economics and Political Science, where I have recently finished my Master of Research.

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. 

I like travelling and exploring. 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 and intertemporal preferences.

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

I also have other ongoing projects in Economic History, about people’s basic numerical capabilities.
