My research focuses on state intervention in the economy and the interaction between state finance and political regimes. Specifically, I am looking at the impact of development banking on the Southern Italian economy throughout the second half of the 20th century. In general, I am interested in the historical development of financial architecture, institutional economics and history, development finance and banking history. Subsequently, my work lies at the intersection of economics and history, and my research approach is based on a conjunction of quantitative techniques and historical methods.
I have received my Bachelor in History and Middle Eastern Studies from McGill University in Montreal (Canada), and my Master in International History from the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies with a strong focus on financial history in Geneva (Switzerland). I am fluent in Italian and English, read in French and Spanish and have a basic knowledge of Arabic.
