I work on the effect of the Great Recession on fertility in advanced economies. In my PhD thesis I address the fertility response to the crisis in the US, especially regarding first births and childlessness.

I am interested in how economic and employment uncertainty affects family and couple dynamics in their decision to become parents and the mechanisms of transmission of insecurity from the work and financial domain to the family dimension.

Previously I graduated in Economics at Bocconi University in Milan.
