Ph.D. Candidate in Economics

Department of Economics


I am a Ph.D. Candidate at the Department of Economics of the University of Zurich
and I am on the job market in the 2023/2024 academic year.

I am a political economist and economic historian. My current research examines the role of grassroots organizations in political participation. In my job market paper, I focus on U.S. labor unions and study how a large-scale corruption scandal hindered their ability to mobilize workers and voters.

I earned my M.Sc. in economics at the Barcelona Graduate School of Economics (Universitat Pompeu Fabra) in 2017 and my B.A. in International Studies from University of Trieste. My research interests include political economy, economic history, labor economics, and development economics.
