I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Economics at Bocconi University and an affiliated student of LEAP- Laboratory for Effective Anti-Poverty Policies. I am a research affiliate at IZA. From September 2015 to May 2016, I was a Visiting Fellow at the Economics Department at Harvard University and from September 2016 to August 2017 a PODER Research Fellow at IIES (Institute for International Economic Studies) – Stockholm University .
During my PhD, I have primarily worked on Education Economics with a focus on equality of opportunities in human capital accumulation. I am also interested in Labor and Development Economics.
