About me

Hi there! I am an Economist interested in Data Science. I am passionate about data and in particular macroeconomic data. I have 7+ years of experience in teaching introductory courses in Economics and Econometrics. I have also worked on academic projects aimed at creating interactive contents for students. My goal is to combine my knowledge of Macroeconomics with my interest in Data Science. Occasionally I write articles on economic policy issues in Italy and Europe.

Here you can find my cv.

Berlin School of Economics and Law (HWR Berlin) & IPE Berlin
Research Associate
Oct 2017 – Aug 2022 Berlin (DE)

I have worked mainly on two projects, MGWK, short for the German Modelltheoretische Grundlagen wirtschaftspolitischer Kontroversen, and WIPOSIM - The economic policy simulator. Goal of the two project was to teach Macroeconomics in an interactive and engaging way using some simple simulations. Both projects have been developed entirely in R/RStudio and numerous other packages (shiny, plotly, bookdown, etc.).

My responsibilities included:

  • Programming of the simulations and the relative interactive applications
  • Drafting the explanatory texts for the simulations
  • Editorial work on the final textbook
