I obtained my PhD from the University of Pisa (Italy) in May 2008 defending a thesis on the monetary policy analysis of the Euro Area using a DSGE model incorporating credit frictions. I previously studied at The University of York (UK) where I got a Master of Science in Economics (with distinction). I was a visiting researcher (June-Sept. 2008 and Feb-April 2009) at the Central Bank of Estonia and I was an intern at the European Central Bank in the period Sept.-Dec. 2008 (Monetary Policy Stance Division) and in the period May-July 2009 (Capital Markets and Financial Structure Division). After that, I spent one year as a May Wong Smith post-doctoral research fellow at the University of St Andrews (UK). From November 2010 I joined the modelling group of Norges Bank as a senior adviser for 7 years (with a year of leave as ESCB/IO economist in the Financial Research Department of the European Central Bank). On February 2018 I joined the Cleveland Fed Research Department.
