Personal profile


I am a SGSSS-ESRC funded PhD student in Economics. My research is cross-institutionally supervised by Prof Andy Zapechelnyuk (University of Edinburgh), Dr Min Zhang (University of St Andrews), and Prof David A. Jaeger (University of St Andrews). I am interested in the study of optimal persuasion and non-Bayesian social learning with an application to food policy. 

I was born and raised in Italy and hold a M.Sc. in Economics from the University of St Andrews and a M.A. (Hons) in Business Management and Economics from the University of Aberdeen. 

Prior to starting the PhD, I worked as a market analyst. In my spare capacity, I am eager to support Rotaract and UNV initiatives.
