Bio sketch. I am Assistant Professor of Economic Policy at the Department of Economics and Statistics, University of Torino, and Senior Research Fellow at LABORatorio R. Revelli – Center for Employment Studies. I teach Topics in Labor Economics at the M.Sc. in Statistical and Economic Methods and Macroeconomics at the BA in International Sciences for Development and Co-operation, and I am lecturer of Stata Programming at the M.Sc. in Applied Labor Economics for Development at the International Training Center of the ILO. My research focuses on applied labor economics issues, and on labor market deregulation and temporary employment in particular. I am author of The political economy of work, security and flexibility (2012, The Policy Press), of Flex-insecurity (2009, Il Mulino) – considered a cornerstone in the studies on deregulation of the Italian labor market – as well as of many articles on national and international journals, including the Review of Financial Studies, Oxford Bulletin of Economics and Statistics, The Economic Journal, Journal of Occupational Health and International Journal of Manpower. During the last years my research interests have moved to the relationship between labor market deregulation and human capital accumulation.
