I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Harvard University. I am mentored by Prof. Francesca Dominici and am affiliated with the NSAPH group.
I am fascinated by the application of statistical methods to social and health sciences. My research is at the intersection between causal inference and machine learning. In particular, I study methods to improve public and private interventions in a rampantly heterogeneous world.
I got a PhD in Economics and Data Science jointly at IMT School for Advanced Studies (Italy) and KU Leuven (Belgium).
Before the PhD, I got degrees in Statistics and Sociology at the University of Florence (Italy) and I have been a City Councillor. My research is partially funded by the Harvard Data Science Postdoctoral Research Fund Award.
