My research focuses on Public Finance, Political Economy and Development Economics.

I have published in top academic journals, such as American Economic Review, Journal of European Economic Association, Journal of Development Economics and American Political Science Review.

I have previously worked at the University of Warwick and the University of Alicante. I obtained my Ph.D. in Economics from Bocconi University in 2010.
