My research focuses on empirical macroeconomics and political economy. I’m currently developing a research project that aims to study the influence of political-institutional factors on macroeconomic variables, using appropriate techniques to avoid reverse causality bias. A second project on which I’m working (joint with Professor Antonella Stirati at Roma Tre University and funded by a grant from the Institute for New Economic Thinking) aims to assess the influence of aggregate demand on economic growth and income distribution in the medium/long-run. From a methodological point of view, I’m interested in the use of explicit research designs and natural experiments for the identification of causal relations in macroeconomics.
