Welcome to my webpage!
I am Associate Professor of Public Economics at the "Magna Graecia" University of Catanzaro and I have obtained the National Scientific Qualification (Abilitazione scientifica nazionale) as Full Professor of Public Economics (13/A3) and Economic Policy (13/A2) in the 2016-2018 round.
From 2011 to 2017 I worked as Assistant Professor and from 2017 to 2018 as Associate Professor at the University of Salerno. I received a PhD in Applied Economics from the University of Calabria and a PhD specialization in Health Economics and Policy from the Swiss School of Public Health (SSPH+) at the University of Lausanne.
