I am a PhD Candidate in Economics working under the guidance of Prof. Mike Brewer and Prof. Alari Paulus at the Institute for Social and Economic Research (ISER) and affiliated with the ESRC Center on Micro-Social Change (MiSoC). My research interests focus broadly on income inequality, taxation of top incomes and intergenerational mobility. Before joining University of Essex, I worked for the Directorate General for Economics, Statistics and Research in Banca d'Italia (Italian Central Bank). I have a Master degree in Economics with distinction from University of Uppsala and a summa cum laude MSc in Economics from University of Siena.
