Short Bio

I received the MEng in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from Imperial College London in 2016 submitting a thesis on a novel statistical signal processing technique under the supervision of Dr Danilo Mandic. In 2018 I completed the Msc in Control Engineering from Università di Roma "La Sapienza" with a thesis on the controllability of complex networks applied to interbank lending markets under the guidance of Dr Giulio Cimini and Professor Guido Caldarelli.

In November 2018 I joined the PhD in Data Science offered by the Scuola Normale Superiore, Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna, IMT Lucca, Università di Pisa, and CNR Pisa. I am working with Professors Diego Garlaschelli and Giorgio Fagiolo on production network modelling and reconstruction. Throughout my PhD I have been working in close collaboration with data scientists at ABN AMRO Bank in the Netherlands to study the network of payments between clients. 

My research interests are on the application of network models to the study of macroeconomic phenomena. In particular I am interested in modelling how the structure and rewiring dynamics of the inter-firm network affect the dynamics of the economic aggregates and the economic resilience of countries and regions.
