I am a Ph.D. student in Social and Political Sciences at the European University Institute. Previously, I attained my BA in “Political Science: International politics and history” at the University of Padova(Italy). Here, I got interested in the increase in income and wealth inequality within OECD countries and wrote my thesis on the topic. To further understand the problem I attended an MA in “Comparative Public Policies and Welfare Studies” at the University of Southern Denmark(Denmark). During the MA, I shifted my focus from the macro to the micro-level of analysis. Therefore, I wrote my thesis on citizens’ preferences for social policies.
Now, I work to understand how environmental factors (e.g. climate change) affect inequalities in life outcomes. Here an article on COVID-19 and pollution in Italy.
I follow the dictum “mens sana in corpore sano”. In my free time, I like to take care of my body and mind. I enjoy practicing sports. For example, I am part of the EUI running group and take part every now and then in trail runs. In addition, I practice Vipassana Meditation.
