I am a Ph.D. candidate in Public Policy and Administration at Bocconi University. My research and teaching interests include political institutions, comparative politics, bureaucratic politics and public administration (local and national level).
I received my bachelor’s degree from Oxford University and my master’s degree from University College London, before going to work as a Policy Officer for the European Commission. This experience shaped the direction of my research, which lies at the interface between political institutions and public administration. Asking how institutional features interact with individual preferences to shape public administration outcomes and structures.
My current work examines these questions in a range of contexts, including cross-national analyses of low- and middle-income countries and multi-level panel data on individuals in Italian governance structures.
I was awarded the Fulbright-Schuman scholarship for the academic year 2016/2017, which I spent at Harvard Economics’ Economics Department under the supervision of Professor Claudia Goldin.
