She obtained a PhD in Economics from the University of Bologna in June 2017. During her PhD she spent a semester as a visiting PhD student at New York University and was a visiting researcher at Bocconi University. The main goal of her research is to study the interplay between cultural transmission dynamics and household choices. She aims to identify the role cultural-ethnic traits play in marriage choices and to uncover the implications of marital sorting on consequent intra-household decision, by using both structural and reduced form econometric methods. From different perspectives, Giulia’s research focuses on interethnic marriages formed within the Italian marriage market. Building on marital matching models, she contributes to the investigation of new channels with which to explain the process of marital selection along cultural lines, namely the cultural socialization of children and legal status acquisition motives. Giulia has developed teaching experience as a teaching assistant for various Econometrics courses at the University of Bologna, both at the undergraduate and graduate level. The content of the various courses ranged from micro to more macro oriented studies.
