I am a post-doc at the University of Lausanne (UNIL). I completed my PhD at the University of Essex in 2021, and I was a visiting PhD at UC Berkeley. 

My research interests lie in the field of public and labor economics, with a focus on studying behavioral responses to tax policies and the effects of public policies on gender inequality, intergenerational mobility, and educational achievement. 

My research has been recognized with several awards, including the IIPF Young Economist Award from the International Institute of Public Finance, the Young Labor Economist Award from the Italian Labor Economics Association, the Early Career Research Award from the Upjohn Institute, and the SIEP Best Paper Award from the Italian Society of Public Economics.
