I am Dean for Diversity, Inclusion and Sustainability and full professor of public economics. I am also the Director of the AXA Research Lab on Gender Equality
I received a PhD in Economics from Universitat Pompeu Fabra and a BA in Economic and Social Sciences from Bocconi. I have spent research periods, among the others, at Columbia University of New York, Nuffield College-Oxford, Trinity College-Dublin, CESifo-Munich, University of Edinburgh and USI-Lugano.
I joined Bocconi as associate professor, before I was assistant professor at University of Pavia and post-doc researcher at CORE-Université Catholique de Louvain.
My research concentrates on gender economics and policies, including women in politics, women in leadership positions and policies to promote gender equality and women’s empowerment. I also work on public economics and political economics of taxation, pensions and the welfare state. I develop an interdisciplinary research interacting with different disciplines in social sciences, including economics, political science, demography, management and public policy.
