About me

I hold a BSc Economics and Business (cum laude) from LUISS Guido Carli, during which I have researched at the Rotterdam Institute of Law and Economics (RILE) on the joint use of liability rules and regulation in preventing environmental harm. I joined the LSE for my MSc Economics in 2015 and the year after started teaching at LSE and Oxford. From 2017 I have been the Course Manager for Microeconomics (EC201) in the Economics department at LSE and have recently started teaching Environmental Economics (GY222) in the Geography and Environment department.

In my PhD I focus on the behavioural and economic drivers of people’s decisions affecting the environment. More specifically, I focus on the role that information and social learning play in determining pro-environment behaviour and discount rates.
