About me

I am a PhD Candidate in Economics. My research so far has focussed on intergenerational persistence of occupations and its effects on labour market outcomes.  More generally, I am interested in how agents make career choices and how this process can affect welfare and inequalities.
Prior to joining the PhD programme, I completed the MRes (with distinction) and the MSc (with merit) in Economics at the LSE. I hold a BA in Management (cum laude) from University of Rome La Sapienza and spent a semester as visiting student at University College Dublin, Ireland, and one at Catholic University of Louvain, Belgium.
