Something about me

A short bio

I was born in 1993 in Bergamo (BG), a city in Lombardy in central Northern Italy.

I'm married to Laura since September 2021 and we live in the countryside with our three cats Ragù, Fusillo and Luna and our dog Axel.

In 2023, we received a huge gift: Margherita!

I'm a very big fan of Marvel's Avengers, The Lord of the Ring, Star Wars saga, The Office and Boris. My mentors definitely include Master Yoda, Gandalf and Renè Ferretti!

Academic activity

Since January 2022, I'm Junior Assistant Professor (RTDA) of Economic Statistics at the Department of Economics, Management and Statistics of the University of Milano Bicocca, Italy. Moreover, since February 2022 I'm Associate Researcher at Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM) in Milan, Italy.

My research activities and interests focus on environmental, energy and socio-economic statistics and econometrics. Most of my research relates to the statistical analysis of air quality and agriculture, with a particular attention to the case of the Po Valley and Lombardy. In recent years I also developed methodologies for temporal and spatio-temporal data aiming at analyzing the impacts of events and policies, including the study of policies devoted to reducing airborne pollutant levels in Italy and critical areas of Europe. Other interests include the use of macroeconometrics tools to study the territorial development and the spatial inequalities affecting the socio-economic pathway in Europe and the role of education and income inequality in determining a sustainable development of the European society.
