Welcome to my webpage.

My research interests are Labour Economics, Migration Economics and Counterfactual Impact Evaluation. 

I have a PhD in Economics from the University of Essex. The paper "Removing the Wall around Welfare: What Do We Learn from A8 Immigrants in the UK?" is part of my PhD thesis.

Over the years I have taught different graduate and undergraduate courses, both as Teaching Assistant and as Teaching Fellow, at the University of Essex, UK, and at the Università di Cagliari, Italy. 





I am a Research Economist at the Competence Centre on Microeconomic Evaluation (CC-ME) at the Joint Research Center (DG-JRC) of the European Commission in Ispra (VA), Italy. 

I am also a Visiting Fellow at the Department of Economics, University of Essex.
