Welcome to my website!

In trying to "be the change I want to see in the world", my professional life evolves around the quest for innovative paths towards a socially, ecologically and economically sustainable and inclusive future. I am a development economist, with a PhD from the Paris School of Economics, University Paris 1 - Panthéon-Sorbonne under the supervision of Hillel Rapoport in the economics of migration and culture.

My professional home is the Growth Lab at Harvard University, working in the team of Ricardo Hausmann on development policy research, in close collaboration with policymakers all over the world to translate rigorous research into actionable policy. Find some of our most recent work on "Growth Through Inclusion in South Africa" in the "Research" section of this page. Before that, I worked at the Free University of Bozen - Bolzano, working with the team of Alessandro Narduzzo creating the "Observatory on Social Innovation and Social Entrepreneurship"

Beyond my career in development economics, I am a passionate mountaineer, preferably accompanied by two legged and four legged friends. I flourish in my curiosity for a broad knowledge, constantly eager to discover and learn. Language teacher, amateur jockey, horse trainer, tech entrepreneur, hiking and skiing leader, G7 Youth delegate, are a few of my adventures you can discover in the "Beyond" section of this website. 

Beyond the Beyond section, there's a little "Stories" section that, as the name says, tells stories. Find my latest reflection "Seats at two tables" in the section.

If any of this sparks your curiosity for a conversation, please find my contact and updated CV in the "Contact" section.
