My main research interests lie within the fields of behavioural economics, education and experimental economics.
My current research focuses on non-cognitive skills and their contribution to a better understanding of individual behaviour. I am particularly interested in risk and time preferences and their role in shaping socio-economic outcomes. Other research areas include the contribution of individual’s attitudes and preferences to the explanation of the gender differences typically found in the literature. Moreover, I am interested in understanding the circumstances triggering peer effects and pro-social behaviour, specifically I am studying the role of group identity, incentive schemes and feedback on peers' performance.
My research is based on various types of data, from institutional datasets to surveys and data collected through field and laboratory experiments.
