She obtained her Master degree in Economics at the Toulouse School of Economics (TSE), where she majored in Environmental and Resource Economics. In her joint Master thesis on Waste Economics, she evaluated a waste policy implemented in Trento (Italy) through a recently developed econometric method acknowledged at TSE, and elaborated during an internship at the Ifo Center for Energy, Climate and Exhaustible Resources in Munich, and as visiting scholar at the Universat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB). Her current research interests mainly focus on Applied Microeconometrics, Policy Evaluation, Environmental and Resource Economics (Climate, Agriculture, Energy and Waste), and spread to the economic impact of migration, crime and conflicts, like the effects of networks of mafia groups and organised criminal behaviour.
