I am a DPhil candidate in Public Policy at the Blavatnik School of Government. Prior to joining Oxford, I worked for the Italian government's venture capital fund, where I looked for innovative Italian start-ups to help them scale globally and attract international investors. My research is focused on the policies governments can implement to support innovation, with particular attention for government-sponsored venture capital programmes.
At 17 I was selected to represent Italy at the United World College in Canada. I later earned a BA in economics and political science from Brown University, where I developed a strong interest in international political economy and received highest honours for my thesis on neoliberalism in Italy. Before returning to Italy, I worked in the private sector in Boston and London, first in management consulting and later in private equity at Fidelity Investments and Eight Roads.
