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 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 cultural identity.
Currently, I am a research fellow at the Growth Lab at Harvard University, working in the team of Ricardo Hausmann on development policy research, in close collaboration with policymakers to translate rigorous research into actionable policy. Before that, I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Free University of Bozen - Bolzano, working with the team of Alessandro Narduzzo in the creation of the "Observatory on Social Innovation and Social Entrepreneurship".
Beyond my career in development economics, I am a passionate mountaineer, preferably accompanied by my animals. 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, MITOC backcountry skiing chair, EU delegate are a few of my adventures you can discover in the "personal" section of this website.
