I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Chair of Macroeconomics, and a research fellow at the Research Department Closed Carbon Cycle Economics, at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum (Germany). I received my Bachelor and Master from the University of Bologna and my Ph.D. (Doctor Europaeus) in Economics and Statistics from the University “G. D’Annunzio” of Pescara (Italy).
My research interests are related to Macroeconomics, Monetary and Financial Economics, Sustainable Finance, and Complex Systems, and my work is concerned with the role of central banks and financial regulators in promoting a low-carbon transition, and the finance-environmental innovation-green growth nexus.
I am currently serving as the Principal Investigator of a research project on “Macroprudential instruments to scale-up green finance” funded by INSPIRE – ClimateWorks Foundation and of research project “Green finance for renewable energy in Germany: a dynamic analysis” funded by Research Department Closed Carbon Cycle Economics (RUB).
