I am a postdoctoral research fellow at Harvard University, where I am mentored by Dr. Francesca Dominici. Previously, I got a PhD in Economics and Data Science jointly at IMT School for Advanced Studies (Italy) and KU Leuven (Belgium). I am fascinated by the application of statistical methods to social and health sciences and my research is at the intersection between causal inference and machine learning. In particular, I study methods to improve public and private interventions in a rampantly heterogeneous world. Before the PhD, I got degrees in Statistics and Sociology at the University of Florence (Italy).
