Biography

I am a Research Fellow at the Health Economics Group at the Univeristoy of East Anglia.

My research fields are the economics of disability, health and public economics of ageing and applied health micro-econometrics.  I gained experiences in the use of large cross-section and longitudinal surveys and the use of micro-simulation techniques.  Prior to joining the UEA I took the MSc in “Applied Economics and Data Analysis” at the University of Essex (UK).  Before moving to England, I was a researcher at CAPP (Centre for the analysis of Public Policies) at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia (Italy). During my PhD at the University of Bologna I implemented a dynamic micro-simulation model which is currently used by CAPP and the Italian Ministry of Social Security to analyze the inter- and intra-generational effects of changes in pension and LTC scheme provisions.

curriculum vitae

Results of my research have been used in many government reports and to provide evidence to official enquiries not only for the UK but also at a European level.  Recently, I have contributed to the report of the Dilnot Commission on Funding Care and Support in the UK and for reports commissioned by the Italian Government and the European Commission. My research has been published/accepted for publication in academic journal including Journal of Royal Statistical Society: Series A (Statistics in Society), Review of Income and Wealth, Journal of Poverty and Social Justice, Health Economics, Policy and LawJournal of Pension Economics and Finance and Health Statistics Quarterly.
