I am a Research Fellow in Health Economics with the Health organisation, policy and economics (HOPE) group at the University of Manchester. I am also a co-lecturer for the Health Economics module offered to BA/BSc students in Economics at the University of Manchester, alongside module leader Dr. Luke Munford.
Prior to joining the University of Manchester, from September 2016 to February 2020 I have been Doctoral Fellow at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland (SUPSI) and a PhD student at the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute (Swiss TPH).
I obtained a PhD in Public Health with specialization in Health Economics (2019) from the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute (Swiss TPH) of the University of Basel with a thesis titled “An Inquiry into Health Systems Governance: the Case of Tanzania” (available here). I also obtained a MSc in Economics from HEC Lausanne (2016), a BA in Economics from Università della Svizzera Italiana (2012), and a BSc in Business Administration from SUPSI (2011). I am a first-generation University student and – during undergraduate studies – I funded my studies by maintaining part-time (non-research) positions in the public sector in Southern Switzerland.
I am a member of the following scientific organisations: Health Economists’ Study Group UK (HESG), European Economics Association (EEA), Swiss Society of Health Economics (sggö).
