Research interests

Family Economics, Labor Economics, Public Economics

In particular, my research focuses on three main areas: i) family economics, where he studies collective consumption models, time-use allocation, labor supply, intergenerational transmissions, and gender issues; ii) public economics, including optimal income taxation, social welfare, ex-ante evaluation of public policies, and micro-macro simulation models; and iii) economics of risky behaviors, with a special interest on models of addiction and household externalities of alcohol consumption.
