I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Politics and International Studies and a member of the Warwick Q-Step Centre.
I received a PhD in Economics from Birkbeck College, University of London, in 2011; an MSc in Economics from Birkbeck in 2007; and a Laurea in Political Science from the University of Florence in 2003. I have held teaching and research appointments at the University of Essex, the University of Genoa, IMT Lucca and Sciences Po, Paris. In my pre-academic life, I served as an officer in the Italian Navy, principally working in anti-submarine warfare. My CV is here.
