During 2020-2023, I was "Unicredit & Universities Foscolo Europe" research fellow in Padova. I also held postdoctoral fellowships at the Toulouse School of Economics and CORE - Universitè catholique de Louvain. I obtained the Ph.D from the University of York in 2019.

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 the unintended effects of public policies.

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