November 2020 - Gruyères (Switzerland)
I am a Ph.D. candidate in Economics at the University of Geneva.
My main research interest is Political Economy, with a focus on ineffective contracting institutions. In particular, I study how clogged civil courts leave room for other nongovernmental contracting institutions, such as the Italian Mafia.
I am also interested in Labour Economics, in particular about the effect of education choices on labour market outcomes.
Finally, I am engaged with the Migration literature. I study the effect of failed migration attempts on the sending country.

I am co-founder and co-president of Rare Voices in Economics (former Women in Economics Léman), a joint initiative by PhD students at the Graduate Institute Geneva, the University of Geneva, the University of Lausanne, and EPFL since 2019.
We are PhD students in Economics, some of us are “rare voices*”, others are not. We all believe that our profession could do better both in terms of individual experience and productivity via better allocation of talents. Creating a safe space for diverse voices to express themselves can benefit everybody. Our mission is to keep this discussion open and advocate for change at the institutional level.
In September 2021, with Laura Minu Nowzohour, I organized
the first edition of the conference "Rare Voices in Economics".
We designed and moderated the roundtable "Pathways for More Inclusive Economics Departments: What Works and What Doesn't", an interdisciplinary discussion with Professor Emmanuelle Auriol (TSE), Professor Heidi Mirza (Goldsmiths University of London, University College London and LSE) and Professor Estefania Santacreu-Vasut (ESSEC Business School).
