Welcome to my website!
My professional life evolves around carrying out research on the economics of migration and cultural identity. I recently completed a PhD in economics at the Paris School of Economics, University Paris 1 - Panthéon-Sorbonne under the supervision of Hillel Rapoport.
Currently, I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Free University of Bolzano, working with Steven Stillman and Martin Halla. I am a fellow at Institut Convergences Migrations, and a former visiting fellow at the Growth Lab of the Center for International Development at Harvard University, working with the team of Ricardo Hausmann.
My research focuses on the economics of migration and cultural identity in the context of an increasingly globalized world, using state-of-the-art methods of mirco data evaluation. I highly value multidisciplinarity, in that I try to look at the research questions from the angles of different strands of social science, like sociology, psycology and history. You can find out more about my research in the section "research".
Beyond my academic career, I am a passionate mountaineer, preferably accompanied by my animals, and engage in protecting our nature. I flourish in my curiosity for a broad knowledge, constantly eager and open to discover and learn. Language teacher, horse riding instructor, racehorse trainer, entrepreneur, EU delegate are a few of my adventures you can discover in the "personal" section of this website.
