I am a Ph.D. candidate in economics at Sapienza University of Rome. During the academic year 2019-2020, I enrolled in the M.Res. program in Economics (IDEA) at the Autonomous University of Barcelona. Before that, I earned my M.Sc. in Economics from Barcelona School of Economics (Pompeu Fabra University).

My research areas span behavioral economics, experimental economics, and agricultural economics. I believe that intriguing economic insights often emerge from keen observations of daily life.
