I obtained a BSc in Economics from Bocconi University in Milan. During my final year I had the
opportunity to visit Columbia University as an exchange student, where I fell in love with New
York and became attracted by Finance. I consequently decided to enroll in an MSc in financial
economics at the London School of Economics. My research interests are still broad and cover
continuous time asset pricing and systemic risk. In particular, the prominence of Stern in the
areas of systemic risk and macro-prudential regulation combined with the prospect of the "living
laboratory" called New York City are the main factors that made me chose Stern.
I am a passionate traveller and I have had the opportunity to extensively travel around the
world. I am mainly fascinated by Africa, having visited it eight times. Finally, each of the
approximately 400 official tennis matches I played from 1999 have an important role in my life.
