Welcome on my page!
I am Associate Professor of Public Economics at the "Magna Græcia" University of Catanzaro and Researcher at RWI Essen. 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.
I received my PhD from the University of Calabria and a PhD specialization in Health Economics and Policy from the Swiss School of Public Health (SSPH+).
I am member-elect of the Steering committee of the Italian Health Economics Association (AIES) for 2017-2020 and 2020-2023, on the Editorial board of the Elsevier journal Economics and Human Biology and member of the Scientific Committee of IWAEE.
My main research interests are in the fields of health economics and policy evaluation with a particular focus on the economics of risky behaviours and socio-economic status related health inequalities. On these topics, I've published papers in the European Economic Review, Oxford Bulletin of Economics and Statistics, Journal of Health Economics, Health Economics and Economics Letters, among others.
