I am a PhD candidate in the Finance Group of the University of Amsterdam and the Tinbergen Institute, under the supervision of Enrico Perotti. I currently work at the European Central Bank on the potential financial stability implications of a digital euro.
In my research I study central bank digital currency and the economics of the European Monetary Union, including questions related to fiscal transfers, common exchange rate implications, and common debt issuance. Other research interests are in financial regulation, banking and macro finance.
