I'm a PhD candidate in the Department of Economics at George Mason University. I'm also a PhD fellow at the Mercatus Center and a Graduate Fellow at the F.A.

My work has been published in such academic outlets as Public Choice, Rationality & Society, the International Review of Law and Economics, the Oxford Handbook of Public Choice, and Cambridge University Press. My first book, co-authored with Ilia Murtazashvili, is The political economy of fracking, forthcoming by Routledge.

I was born and raised in Sardinia, Italy. After graduating from high school, I studied history at the University of Sienna and the University of Rome "La Sapienza." After starting my graduate studies in contemporary history, I discovered and fell in love with economics and decided to change tracks. In 2014 I moved to the United Kingdom to study in the Department of Political Economy at King's College London, where I graduate with distinction in 2015 after being selected as student of the year and receiving a prize for best MA dissertation.
