I am currently an analyst in the OECD Directorate for Education and Skills, where he have worked on PIAAC (the Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies) for the past six years. Before joining the OECD, I was an economist at the Bank of Italy for five years. My research interests are in labour economics and in the economics of education. I am currently working on age rank effects, the evolution of gender gaps in cognitive skills over students' school years, and on how log files can complement information from standardised assessments. I hold a PhD in Economics from Bocconi University and a MSc in Economics from the LSE.
