research project

My research interests are in the fields of political economy and post keynesian economics and, more specifically, on the topics around financialisation and the functioning of financial markets and financial institutions. I intend to continue developing the work that I started with my PhD Thesis, exploring new lines of research that remain to be deepened. The majority of my works use econometric methodologies to assess the impact/consequences of financialisation on real economy and on society.

The worked developed by me fits perfectly the scientific identity of D’C and particularly in the research area of Governance, Economy and Society. Indeed, this thematic line reflects in an integrated way some issued connected with globalization, neoliberalism and Europeanisation – dimensions commonly linked with the process of financialisation and the way as financial interests have overlapped other dimensions of real and social life.
