Welcome! I am a PhD student in Legal Studies at Bocconi University, Italy.
My research interests include international economic law, WTO law, digital trade, artificial intelligence, and big data. I have authored and co-authored a number of publications on trade in services and e-commerce.
My academic credentials also include a Master in International law and Economics (MILE) from the World Trade Institute (WTI) in Bern, and a MA in International Relations and Diplomatic studies from the University of Bologna.
Prior to joining the PhD programme, I founded TradePol Consulting, an advisory firm providing technical assistance on international trade policy issues. As a trade policy advisor I have worked for a number of international organizations – including FAO, ITC, UNCTAD, UNESCAP, World Bank and WTO – and national governments, and supported private firms’ efforts to access and operate in foreign markets.
Believing in the importance of giving back to the academic and professional community I belong to, I decided to participate in the Mentoring Programme organized by the WTI in Bern. As a mentor I offer MILE and TRAIL+ students support during their graduate studies and advice on career development. Recently, I have also taken the lead in building the first mentoring programme for Trade Experettes.
