I am an applied microeconomist. My main research activity lies in the intersection of Public Economics and Industrial Organization, with a focus on public procurement markets (H57), fiscal policies and firm performance (D22, H32, L25), and public vs. private provision of public goods (H11, H4, L33). I am also interested in the personnel economics of the state (D73, H83, J45, M54) and innovation economics (O3).
I am a tenure-track researcher at ZEW – Leibniz Centre for European Economic Research, where I lead the junior research group “Public Procurement.” I am also a junior member of the Mannheim Centre for Competition and Innovation (MaCCI) and an affiliate member of the CESifo Research Network. Previously, I worked as a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Rome Tor Vergata (Italy) from 2017 to 2018, where I obtained my doctoral degree in June 2017. Prior to that, in 2013, I earned a master’s degree from the Toulouse School of Economics.
