I am an Associate Professor in the University of Padova in Italy. 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. I received my PhD in 2011 from Universidad Autonoma de Barcelona.
My research is on political economy and public economics combining knowledge from economics and political science. My favorite publications appear on the Journal of Public Economics, the American Journal of Political Science, and the Journal of Politics.
