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). In 2022, I was visiting research fellow at the ESMT Berlin and since 2023 I am Visiting Associate Professor at TSE.
My research interests are in the field of Industrial Organization and Digital Economics. I am currently working on platform governance of quality and innovation, vertical relations within platform markets, and 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.
I am also affiliated to:
CESifo Economics of Digitization (December 2023, Munich)
UNIBG Industrial Organization Winter Symposium (December 2023, Passo del Tonale)
