I am a research economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland. My research interests span the economics of networks, financial intermediation, banking and financial stability.
For the 2022/2023 academic year, I was on secondment to the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System in the Division of Financial Stability.
I completed my Ph.D. in the Department of Economics at the European University Institute. Before that, I worked as an economic consultant in the Antitrust and Competition Policy Group at NERA Economic Consulting.
