Courses a.y. 2023/2024
Prior to joining Bocconi, I was a researcher at the Becker Friedman Institute of Economics at the University of Chicago. I obtained a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Münster, with research stays at the University of Chicago, the University of California at San Diego, and Bonn University.
My research addresses questions at the intersection of public finance and behavioral economics, with applications to consumer policy and environmental regulation. Most of my studies use field experiments to identify structural parameters underlying economic behavior and its implications for optimal policy.
