I was born in Potenza, Basilicata (Italy), on the 5th of May 1981. In 2004 I graduated from Bocconi University and I moved to Barcelona to study an MSc in Economics at Pompeu Fabra University. After a one-year scholarship at Carlos III University in Madrid, in 2006 I moved to the University of Kent in Canterbury (UK) as a Ph.D. student. In September 2009 I started as a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) at the University of Surrey where I have also contributed to the creation and development of the Centre for International Macroeconomic Studies. In April 2013 I was promoted to Senior Lecturer and in August 2018 to Reader. In September 2018 I joined the Research Hub of the Bank of England as a Senior Research Economist. In July 2021 I have been promoted to Research Advisor. In March 2023 I left the Bank of England and the University of Surrey to join Sapienza University of Rome as a Full Professor in Economics. Over the years I’ve also been at OECD and ECB as an intern, at the Banco de España as a research fellow, at the University of California San Diego as a visiting professor, a pole lead director at the Centre for Macroeconomics and a Guest teacher of Monetary Economics in the MSc of the London School of Economics .
