I am Associate Professor of Economics at Bocconi University and a Research Affiliate at CEPR. In 2015/16, I have been a visiting scholar at the NYU Department of Economics, the NYU Stern School of Business and the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. I received a Ph.D. in Economics from MIT in 2012. My research interests include macroeconomics and financial economics. Most of my recent work aims at understanding the economy-wide implications of informational frictions and bounded rationality, showing how such frictions shape the design of optimal fiscal and monetary policy.
