About me

I’m a doctoral student and assistant at the University of Basel, Department of Public Economics.
My research focuses on the effect of climate policy on firm behaviors.

I am also working in political economy as a doctoral research affiliate at ETH Zürich, Law, Economics and Data Science group. More precisely, I study the interplay between media and politics, how language and framing information affects public policy preferences.
