About me

I am extremely enthusiastic about research and innovation, and they absorb a lot of my energies.  My research interests focus on innovation and economic growth. In my research, I have been working on the identification of the impact of specific policies, e.g. the patent term, or institutions on economic agents' incentives to innovate. I try to leverage on these findings to improve our knoweldge of the nature of the R&D and innovation processes, which are also the  focus of other research projects using Italian administrative data on innovators. 

In my free time, I also like to paint and to play basketball. Before starting the PhD, I worked as a macroeconomic researcher in an investment fund and as a basketball coach for children.
