Short Bio 

I am Professor of Economics at Sapienza University of Rome (Italy). I study the impact of conflict on firms and individual-level outcomes – including employment, migration, education, fertility, and health – and the economic and political determinants of violence and conflict in developing countries.

My research has been published in leading academic journals including Journal of the European Economic Association, Economic Journal, Journal of Development Economics, Economic Policy, Demography, and Journal of Politics, among others. I have worked as a consultant on issues related to conflict, trade policy, and industrial development for World Bank, UNIDO, UNCTAD, UNECA, ESCWA, ECLAC, and IGC.

I received my Ph.D. in Economics from University of Siena and my Laurea (Master) in Economics and Social Sciences from Bocconi University. Before joining Sapienza University of Rome, I was Associate Professor at Parthenope University of Naples (Italy).
