About me

I am a PhD candidate at the Center for Research in Economics and Statistics (CREST) and a doctoral affiliate at the Institute for Public Policies (IPP).

I study topics related to political economy, law, and crime. I am also interested in econometrics and machine learning.

My supervisor is Alessandro Riboni.

I am currently visiting ETH Zürich, invited by Elliott Ash.

I am on the 2022/2023 academic job market.
