Welcome! I am a Fellow in International Political Economy at the London School of Economics (LSE), where I teach courses on the political economy of trade for undergraduate and graduate students.
I hold a PhD cum laude from Bocconi University, a Master in International law and Economics (MILE) summa cum laude from the World Trade Institute (WTI) in Bern, and a MA in International Relations and Diplomatic studies from the University of Bologna. 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.
Prior to joining LSE, I worked for several years as a trade policy advisor for several 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. I am also the co-lead of Trade Experettes‘ mentoring programme, which I helped building from scratch.
