Here you can find my complete CV
I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Economics at the University of Copenhagen, where I am part of the Development Economics Research Group.
I previously worked at the OECD and the University of Oxford, where I continue to collaborate with the Centre for the Study of African Economies (Department of Economics). In the fall of 2022, I was a visiting scholar at Stanford University.
My research interests are in the fields of Applied Micro, Labour and Behavioural Economics, with a focus on developing countries. My research mainly uses experimental methods to investigate how to make labour markets more efficient and inclusive. I hold a PhD in Economics from the University of Oxford.
In recent years I have collaborated with several international organisations, including the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. My previous work experiences also include the UK Independent Commission on Banking, NERA Economic Consulting and the Institute for Fiscal Studies (London).
From 2009 to 2013, I held a stipendiary lectureship at St Catherine's College (Oxford), where I taught Development Economics and Macroeconomics. My teaching experience includes designing the Macroeconomics course for undergraduate students at Oxford University, in collaboration with Prof. Sir John Vickers.
In 2011 I was awarded a Junior Fellowship by the Royal Economic Society, and the Luca d'Agliano Award. Between 2009 and 2010 I was affiliated to the École Normale Supérieure, part of the Paris School of Economics.
In 2008, I completed the MPhil Economics at Oxford and I hold a BSc Economics degree from the University College London (2006). In 2001 I was awarded a scholarship to attend the United World College of the Adriatic (Italy).
I was among the founding members of think-tank Fonderia Oxford.
