I am a reserach fellow at the University of Bologna, working on a project on Tourism Economics, supervised by Prof. Paolo Figini.
I am about to earn a Ph.D. in Economics and Management at the University of Trento.
I have recently been a visiting student at GATE (Groupe d'Analyse et de Théorie Economique), in Lyon, where I have been advised by Prof. Marie Claire Villeval on a project dealing with behavioral health economics.
Before the PhD, I completed an M.A. in Economics at the University of Bologna, Italy, and an M.Sc. in Public Economics at the University of York, UK. I also worked as applied economist at the European Commission and at IFEL, a research centre based in Rome.
In my Ph.D. thesis I investigated peer effects and social interactions, both empirically and experimentally, as well as gender discrimination and information acquisition in health contexts, from a behavioral perspective.
In my Master theses I investigated through empirical studies topics such as addiction to cigarettes and the impact of information on it, and also the determinants of female labor supply in both Italy and the UK.
