My policy work is tightly related to my research: the analysis of current affairs allows me to get relevant research ideas, build useful datasets and methods, and valorize my results. I worked as a policy evaluator with the Institute for Public Policies and for the Italian Presidency of the Council. I was the founder of the think tank of young economists Tortuga, and my contributions to the public debate include articles in national and specialized press.

Tortuga is the first think tank of young economists in Italy, producing analysis and research on economic current affairs. Started by 6 students in 2015, nowadays counts more than 50 associates. The mission of Tortuga is to promote growth and equity, particularly inter-generational equity, through a more efficient policy-making in Italy. In 2019 we wrote a book, “Ci Pensiamo Noi”, launching 10 policy proposals for youths in Italy.
