Short Bio

I am a PhD Candidate and researcher in the field of health economics at the Department of Socio-Economic and Mathematical-Statistical Sciences (ESOMAS) at University of Turin. I possess a strong quantitative background in Economics, acquired during my M.Sc. in Economics and Social Sciences from Bocconi University, coupled by broad knowledge in environmental economics consolidated in the Master in Energy Finance at Polytechnic of Milan. The focus of my PhD research activity is the investigation of individual health choices from both a theoretical and behavioral approach. Before pursuing the academic career, I worked as consultant for a major consulting firm in the energy industry, strengthening my personal and project management skills.
