Marinella Leone

Welcome to my web page!

I am Assistant Professor of Economics at the University of Pavia in Italy. I previously worked as Research Fellow at the Institute of Development Studies ( University of Sussex) in the UK. I am a Research Affiliate of the Household in Conflict Network and a Fellow of the Centro Studi Luca D'agliano (University of Milan).

I am an applied development economist and use micro-level data for my research. I study the short, long-term and intergenerational impact of conflicts on health, education and domestic violence. In a recent project I analyse the benefits of an early life parenting programme on child development and parents behaviours. I am interested in how human behaviour shapes social and economic outcomes.

Main topics of my research: analysis of conflicts (long-term and intergenerational effects), early child and adolescence development, gender (domestic violence, and women's empowerment), education.
