I am a research scientist at Luxembourg Institute of Socio-Economic Research (LISER) and affiliated at Ghent University (Belgium), IZA (Germany), GLO (the Netherlands) and Université catholique de Louvain (Belgium). My research interests are Labour Economics, Causal Analysis & Policy Evaluation, Labour Mobility and Sports Economics. My papers have been published in journals such as Labour Economics (2020a, 2020b, 2019), PLoS ONE (2020), Oxford Economic Papers (2019), Empirical Economics (2019), Economics Letters (2017), amongst others.

In 2017 I won a research grant as principal investigator of 468,000 euros funded by the Luxembourg National Research Fund (FNR - CORE Junior scheme). In 2016 I was awarded the VisitINPS Fellowship at the research department of the Italian Social Security Institute (INPS) and the prize for the best PhD thesis for the academic years 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 from AISSEC (Italian Association for the Analysis of Comparative Economic Systems). In December 2015, I completed a joint PhD programme at DEFAP Graduate School of Milan (Italy) and Ghent University (Belgium) under the supervisor of Prof. L. Cappellari and Prof. B. Cockx. Prof. M. Lechner (University of St. Gallen) and Prof. M. Leonardi (University of Milan) were part of my doctoral examination committee.
