I am PhD candidate in Political Science at the University of Washington, Seattle. I hold a Bachelor of International Economics, Management and Finance from Bocconi University (Italy), a Master of Science in Policy Studies from the University of Edinburgh, a Master in Public Policy and Social Change from the Collegio Carlo Alberto (Italy), and an MA in Political Science from the University of Washington. My fields of study are comparative politics, political economy, and political methodology.
My current research focuses on the role that financial and economy literacy play in shaping individual economic policy preferences. I also have worked on political trust in crisis-hit European countries, and on the determinants of structural reforms during economic and financial crises in Italy and France. I recently published an article on the European Journal of Political Research.
Outside of academia I love soccer (I am a big Juventus fan), watching (and sometimes playing) all kinds of sports, traveling, reading, binge-watching TV series, and food (both cooking and eating).
