A Little About Myself.
I am a Full Professor of Economics at the University of Turin. I am also Contract Professor of Economics at Bocconi University, Milan.
I received my BA in Economics from Bocconi University in 1989, my MA in Economics from Université Catholique de Louvain in 1991, and my PhD in Economics from Bocconi University in 1994.
I am a Research Fellow of Baffi-Carefin Center at Bocconi, a Fellow of CESIfo, and a Senior Research Fellow of the Italian Institute for Foreign Policy Studies. I have been spending extended visiting periods at Dartmouth College and Harvard University.
My research focuses on Political Economics, with particular emphasis on psychological aspects of individuals’ political behavior. I also do research on Voting Systems within the European Union, on International Sanctions, and on Bank-Bailout Policy.
My work has been published in numerous academic journals, such as the Journal of Political Economy, the Journal of Public Economics, and the American Journal of Political Science.
