Hi there!


I am a PhD candidate in economics at the European University Institute. In 2017-2018 I was a visiting student at MIT Sloan School of Management.

I am a behavioral and experimental economist with interests at the intersection of development and labor economics. My research uses insights from economics and psychology to better understand human behavior, with the goal of informing the design of policies and markets in low and high-income countries. Most of my work uses laboratory and field experiments in close cooperation with partner organizations, combined with original data collection. Before my PhD, I worked with the World Bank’s Development Research Group, the Center for Global Development and the UN Conference on Trade and Development.


I am on the 2018-2019 academic job market. I will be available for interviews in Naples (Dec 6-7, 2018) and Atlanta (Jan 4-6, 2019). My references are:
