I am an Assistant Professorial Research Fellow at the Grantham Institute on Climate Change and the Environment, London School of Economics. I hold a Ph.D. in Economics from Universita' Ca' Foscari di Venezia (2011). I lead the International Environmental Negotiations Programme at LSE, I am also an Associate Researcher at FEEM, as well as a member of the Levin Lab at Princeton University and an International Fellow of the Sogang Experimental Economics Laboratory in Korea.

Current research interests

Game theory; International environmental agreements; Experimental Economics; Coupled socio-ecological system; Cooperation

My research spans several topics in environmental economics, primarily related to the drivers of cooperation in the (climate) commons. This is tackled through a combination of non-cooperative and evolutionary game theory models, as well as laboratory experiments, surveys and simulations, in an effort to shed light on the potential solutions to environmental dilemmas. Particular attention is given to threshold effects and tipping points in catalysing (or hindering) cooperation. Prospective PhD students who have a solid background in economics and are interested in the above topics, are encouraged to contact me.
