I am a Graduate Programme Participant at the European Central Bank, where I work in the Technology and Innovation Division, within the SSM Governance and Operations Directorate. I hold a Ph.D. in Political Science, with a focus on European Political Economy and quantitative methods, from the University of Geneva.
I have experience conducting research and analytics in academia and policymaking institutions. In September 2018, I started a Ph.D. Traineeship in the Global Media Relations Division, within the Directorate General Communications, at the ECB. In September 2019, I was promoted to the role of Communications Specialist (Research). From September 2020 to August 2021, I worked as a Research Officer on the ERC-funded SOLID project at the London School of Economics and Political Science.
My research interests span several topics in international and European political economy. My Ph.D. thesis explores the politics of unconventional monetary policy during the European sovereign debt crisis. In other parallel projects, I investigate the causes and effects of monetary communications in Europe, as well as the political determinants and consequences of international trade imbalances in advanced industrial democracies. My empirical work is mostly based on natural language processing, machine learning and other statistical techniques. Here you can find more information about my research.
