Who I am

I am a researcher at the Department of Business Economics, Health and Social Care of the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Italian Switzerland. I am also associate researcher at the Department of Sociology and Nuffield College of the University of Oxford. I hold a Ph.D. in Economics from the Catholic University of Milan. I like to define myself as a social scientist with training in behavioural and applied economics and a focus of research on gender equality, demography, and development. In my research I make use of both econometric techniques and experimental methodology to tackle the important issues of our world with an interdisciplinary spirit. From 2017 to 2019 I was a postdoctoral researcher at Dondena Center, Bocconi University, under the supervision of Professor Francesco Billari. Over the next years, I wish to study fertility, migration, and socio-economic development by means of lab-, field- and euro-economic experiments. Besides my academic life, I am a member of the international movement "The Economy of Francesco". I am Leonardo's wife and Giovanni's and Caterina's mum.
