Ph.D. Institution

LUISS Guido Carli Rome, Italy


I conducted my PhD research in the Economics Department of LUISS Guido Carli University in Rome from 2009 until 2014. I am planning to defend my PhD thesis on 26 June 2014.
My interests lie in the fields of monetary economics, fiscal policy and international macroeconomics. In particular, my research has focused on the analysis of optimal policies in response to debt deleveraging shocks.
A strand of my research focuses on analyzing, in an open economy framework, how the Central Bank should optimally react to an international private deleveraging shock. Also, I am studying how the fiscal authority should optimally decrease internal public debt in a closed economy with heterogeneous agents. Both strands of analysis aim to explain how to optimally manage a deleveraging episode, departing from the representative agent assumption.
In LUISS, I have worked as a teaching assistant for the past five years. I taught Econometrics and Statistics at graduate and undergraduate level, also running classes on the use of technical software such as Stata, R and Matlab. In the last academic year I was entirely responsible for an MA level Introductory Statistics pre-course. During my PhD I worked as a research assistant and I carried out an internship at the Sveriges Riksbank.
