This is my personal web page and it is intended to disseminate my research activity.
Short (informal) bio
I am a macroeconomist with interests mainly focussing on DSGE modelling and simulation analysis.
I am currently working for the Joint Research Centre (JRC) in Ispra.
In 2017 I pursued the Italian Abilitazione Scientifica Nazionale (ASN; National Scientific Qualification) as Associate Professor in Politica Economica (Economic Policy; Settore Concorsuale 13/A2) and Scienza delle Finanze (Economics of the Public Sector; Settore Concorsuale 13/A3) from the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research (MIUR).
I used to work for Sogei SpA (Italy’s Ministry of the Economy and Finance, MEF: Directorate I – Economic and Financial Analysis) where I managed and updated the Italian version of QUEST III with R&D that is one of the latest versions of the class of Dynamic General Equilibrium (DGE) models developed by the European Commission for simulation analysis.
Moreover, I worked for the development of a new DGE for the Italian economy (IGEM, Italian General Equilibrium Model) and the construction of GEEM (General Equilibrium Environmental Model), a large-scale DGE model for policy analysis including climate-energy variables.
More recently, I have embraced a new branch of research around firm's network formation through the use of small-scale partial equilibrium models.
I got a degree in Economics at the Sapienza University of Rome where I also attended post-graduate studies gaining a PhD in Economics in May 2007.
I worked as a teaching assistant at LUISS University in Rome for one year; then, I was a lecturer at Tuscia University of Viterbo where I taught Economic Policy and Econometrics for four years (2007-2010).
I also worked as a consultant for several national research institutes and institutions within the Italian Government (Commissione Tecnica per la Finanza Pubblica - Segreteria Tecnica).
