I am a PhD candidate in Economics at the University of Bologna under the supervision of Matteo Cervellati.
In my research I am combining economic theory, econometrics, and tools from GI science, aiming to contribute to the ultimate question of “Why are some countries rich and others not?”. The most fascinating and exciting unresolved issue in all of economics to me.
My main interest thus lies in Economic History and Long-term Macroeconomics / Comparative Development. Furthermore I am interested in Spatial Economics, (applied) (Bayesian) ‘Metrics.
Apart from that, I am passionate about cycling, swimming, the opera, and architecture.

Currently I am, inter alia, working on an R-package to implement mutliple Spatial-, or Geographic Regression Discontinuity Design estimation strategies.
It is called SpatialRDD and a first version will be released in April 2019 on Github.
