I am an Assistant Professor (RTDa) at The University of Padova, and a research associate of the CAGE Research Centre, Warwick.

I obtained my PhD in Economics from the University of Warwick in 2019.  

My research interests lie in the fields of development economics and economic history, with a special focus on their interconnection.
