I am a PhD candidate in the UCL School of Public Policy (2017-2020). I completed my studies in Political Science at LUISS Guido Carli University and at the University of Essex. Prior to joining UCL, I was a policy analyst at TRT Trasporti e Territorio (Milan), a consultancy dedicated to transport policy and economics.
I am broadly interested in how bureaucracies interact with other political actors in the legislative and judicial arenas. In particular, in my PhD I look at the role played by regulatory agencies in the legislative process and how their incomplete statutes are affected by courts decisions.
I am the founder and coordinator of the Public Policy Research Network (PPRN), an inter-university platform which aims to foster methodological training, cooperation, and debate between doctoral students working on the broad field of public policy and political economy. I am also one of the founders of the IPPA Early Career Network, the first global network of early-career policy scholars.
