I am a Research Fellow at the Dondena Center, Bocconi, where I am working with Massimo Morelli on legislative complexity, populism, and bureaucratic politics. I completed my PhD in the UCL Department of Political Science in May 2022.
I am broadly interested in political institutions and political economy. At the time of writing, I study the consequences of populism for government performance, rule-making and bureaucratic accountability, and how government agencies influence legislative politics. I am also interested in natural language processing and quantitative methods.
I am the founder of the Public Policy Research Network (PPRN), an inter-university platform which aims to foster methodological training, cooperation, and debate between doctoral students working on the broad field of public policy and political economy. I am also one of the founders of the IPPA Early Career Network, the first global network of early-career policy scholars.
