Hello! I am an economist at the Organisation of Economic Cooperation and Development, at the Centre for Entrepreneurship, SMEs, Cities and Regions.

I am also an external professor at Paris Dauphine University, where I teach a seminar in Urban and Regional Economics at the Master level.

In the past I worked at Banca d'Italia.

My work looks at the economies of regions and cities, with a focus on innovation, the green transition and economic integration. 

I co-founded CD: 50/50 - Coding Diversity, a no-profit association dedicated to fostering gender diversity in digital competences in Italian high schools. Here you can find a sample of the program we go and teach in schools and here a summary of how the first year went.

I am also a member of ASviS, the Italian alliance for sustainable development and chapter leader of the alumni community of LUISS Guido Carli University in Paris.

I obtained my PhD in Economics from Universitat Pompeu Fabra in 2018, and my undergraduate degree in Business Administration from LUISS Guido Carli University in 2012.
