I am an applied economist with an interest in public and labor economics. I am currently employed at the Research Department of the Bank of Italy, where I work on public finance issues. I hold a B.A. from the University of Torino (2005), a M.A. from Coripe Piemonte (2006), and a Ph.D. from Boston University (2011), where I taught Introductory Microeconomics, Introductory Macroeconomics, and Economics of Regulation. While completing my doctoral studies, I also worked at the Inter-American Development Bank in Washington DC. In the fall of 2015 I visited the Einaudi Institute for Economics and Finance (EIEF).

A complete description of my studies and my work can be found in my curriculum vitae.
