I joined IMT in the fall 2016 as a Ph.D. Researcher in Economics and Data Science and member of the Research Unit AXES - Laboratory for the Analysis of compleX Economic Systems directed by Prof. Massimo Riccaboni.
I am interested in Quantitative Social Science and Data Science. In particular the main fields of my investigation are Causal Inference, Machine Learning, applied Econometrics, Public Policy Evaluation and Political Economy.
Currently I am working on the effects of financial constraints on the life span of firms in Italy and the network effects of sectorial dependency within firms with my collegue at IMT Nicolò Vallarano and Prof. Armando Rungi
I received my masters degree in Statistics, Actuarial and Financial Science at University of Florence. I wrote my masters thesis at Humboldt University working on the bond between Machine Learning and Causal Inference under the supervision of Prof. Fabrizia Mealli (University of Florence, Harvard University) and Prof. Christoph Breunig (Humboldt University). During my undergraduate years I studied at the "Cesare Alfieri" School of Political Science with a focus on the social aspects of economic phenomena.
