Foscolo Europe Unicredit & Universities Research Fellow, University of Padova

Prior to Padova, I held positions at TSE (postdoc), CORE - Universitè catholique de Louvain (postdoc), and York (Ph.D).  Between 2022 and 2023, I held visiting positions at ESMT Berlin and TSE (Visiting Associate Professor).

My research interests are in the field of Industrial Organization and Digital Economics. I am currently working on platform governance of quality and innovation, as well as price and algorithmic transparency in online marketplaces. I am also interested in Public Economics and the unintended effects of public policies.

My research has been published in Management Science, Journal of Health Economics, Journal of Industrial Economics, European Economic Review, amongst others. 

I  co-organize the (monthly) joint Digital Economics Seminar and the IBEO Conference in Alghero (Sardinia) - Digital Economics Session (June, 30 - July 1).

I am also affiliated to:
