I’m currently Assistant Professor at the Department of Economics, University Ca’ Foscari of Venice and Stanford Health Policy Adjunct Associate at the Center for Health Policy, Stanford University. My fields of concentration are applied microeconomics, experimental economics and health economics. In particular, I’m trying to answer to both questions related to economic behaviour under risk and ambiguity and questions related to health economics and more precisely on how different health care systems affect health care demand, supply and health outcomes. I was previously Research Fellow at the Centre for International Health and Development (now Institute for Global Health) at University College London where I was involved in research projects on the equity of health care expenditure in developing settings, and on the role of networks in development programs’ and on their impact on health care. I hold a B.A. in Economics, a Master Degree in Development Economics and a PhD in Economic Theory and Institutions from the University of Rome Tor Vergata. During my doctoral studies, I spent some time as visiting researcher at the Center for Health Policy at Stanford University.
