Foscolo Europe Research Fellow, University of Padova

I am affiliated to:

Previously, at TSE (postdoc), CORE Universitè catholique de Louvain (postdoc), University of York (Ph.D). In 2022, I also visited ESMT Berlin.

In February and March 2023, I will be Visiting Associate Professor at TSE teaching "Digital Economics"

I am an applied microeconomist. My research primarily relates to digital markets, platform ecosystems, and competition policy. I am also interested in the unintended effects of regulation of emergent markets (e.g., platforms, cannabis).

I co-organize the joint Digital Economics Seminar and I am a member of the DaTEPP Lab (Data Technology and Economics for Public Policy lab) of the Department of Economics and Management at UNIPD.

The activities of the DaTEPP Lab aim at understanding the functioning of digital markets, reinforcing the knowledge of economic phenomena using state-of-the-art data analytics, and offering tools for public policies.

The NEAT (North-Eastern Applied Theory) Seminars is a joint initiative of scholars in Padova and Venice, with seminars held locally at the two locations and online, on topics in economic theory, or with an interest in theory-driven applications and experiments.
