Since 2023, I am a Research Fellow at the Economics Department of the University of Bologna (IT).


I am fascinated by economic growth, the natural environment, and the act of lending. In my work I study aggregate economic phenomena related to these themes, primarily applying statistical tools, such as cointegration models and dimension-reduction techniques, to financial markets data.
