I am an applied microeconomist with research focusing on environmental and natural resource issues, looking, in particular, on issues of cooperation among individuals and groups in the commons and for the provision of different types of public goods. I have worked on issues related to common pool resources, transnational biodiversity conservation, climate change, and climate engineering.
I am currently a Research Fellow at the Department of Economics and the Centre for Geography, Resources, Environment, Energy and Networks (GREEN*) at Bocconi University. This position is under Valentina Bosetti's European Research Council (ERC) Grant RISICO. I was a visiting researcher at the Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM) from 2017 - 2018 and a researcher at both the Food and Natural Resource Department & the Center for Macroecology, Evolution and Climate, University of Copenhagen from 2015-2017. I have also served as a consultant for the Asian Development Bank, the Global Green Growth Institute, the United Arab Emirates' Ministry of Climate Change and Environment, and the World Bank.
*GREEN was previously the Centre for Research on Energy and Environmental Economics and Policy (IEFE).

When I am not working, I enjoy little adventures: visiting new places, trying out new food, recreating my favorite dishes, creating arts and crafts, or taking language, cooking and art classes. You can view some of my travels here, a portfolio of selected acrylic paintings here and a portfolio of my zentangle doodles here.
