I obtained a joint Ph.D. in Economics from the Universities of Rome “La Sapienza” (dottore di ricerca in scienze economiche, Italy) and “W.F. Goethe” of Frankfurt am Main (“dr. rer. pol.”, Germany), and I coordinated or took part in a number of research projects for the European Commission, the Fundamental Rights Agency of the EU, and the Italian Government. More info on my research and past experiences in my cv.
I occasionally blog on L’Huffington Post, and I am member of the Next Left Focus Group of the Foundation for European Progressive Studies, as well as the Research Area coordinator on “History of Political Economy” of the European Association for Evolutionary Political Economy (EAEPE). In my free time, I try not to think about the economy.
