I received my PhD in 2011 from Universidad Autonoma de Barcelona. Currently I am an Associate Professor in the University of Padova. I am also affiliated with the University of Lancaster where I previously worked full time. I also had the chance to work for two years in Carlos III in Madrid.
My research uses applied microeconomic theory to tackle questions on political economy and public economics, often at the intersection with political science.
