Welcome to my home page! I received a Ph.D. in Economics at the University of Namur (Belgium) in June 2012 with a thesis titled "Essays in Information Aggregation and Political Economics".
I am currently a Post-doctoral researcher at the Department of Economics "Marco Biagi" of the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia. Moreover, I'm a Part-time Research Fellow at the Research Center for Educational and Network Studies (Recens) at the Center for Social Sciences of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, a regular visiting professor at ESCP-Europe Business School - Paris Campus (where I collaborate with Prof. Yuri Biondi), and an affiliate member of the Namur Center for Complex Systems (Naxys)
My research interests are Networks Theory, Applied Microeconomics, Industrial Organization and Social Interactions.
