Piera BelloUniversità della Svizzera italiana/University College London
I am a Swiss National Foundation post-doctoral fellow at University College London. I am also affiliated to the Institute of Economics at Università della Svizzera Italiana, and the Dondena Gender Initiative and the Baffi-CAREFIN Centre (Pension economics Unit) at Bocconi University. Prior to joining UCL, I worked as postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Economics at Ca’ Foscari University. I completed my PhD in December 2016 at Università della Svizzera Italiana. From January to July 2015, I was a Visiting Scholar at the Department of Economics of Boston College. I hold a Masters degree in economics from Bocconi University. My work is on public economics. My research focuses on gender issues, migration and population ageing. I am particularly interested in private and public pension systems and the impact of long-term financial decisions. My recent papers investigate the functioning of annuity markets. My work has been published in the Journal of Public Economics, Journal of Economic Geography and International Tax and Public Finance.
