I am a PhD candidate in my fifth year at the MIT Department of Economics. My main research interests lie in Financial Economics and Macroeconomics. I was born in Naples, Italy, in 1985 and hold a M.Sc. (2008) degree in Economics from University of Naples, Federico II. During my undergraduate studies, I spent one year as Visiting Scholar at the Northwestern University in Evanston, IL. I worked as Teaching Assistant for courses at Ph.D., MBA and undergraduate levels.
I will be available for interviews at the ASSA meetings in San Diego (Jan 4-6, 2013).
