Giulia’s interest and training are in labour economics and applied microeconomics, with a special focus in economics of identity.

Her Ph.D. thesis focuses on different empirical questions related to the dynamics of the formation and manipulation of identity, a person's sense ofself.

In her first paper, she explores occupational choices of self identified gay workers in Great Britain. In her second paper, she shows how secular television can attenuate religious hatred in a religiously diverse country. Her current research focuses on the relationship between the ethnic identity of elected leaders and outcomes of individuals who belong to the same group in educational settings.

Before joining Queen Mary, Giulia studied in Bocconi University, Milan (BA and MSc in Economics and Social Sciences). After graduation, she worked as research assistant in Fondazione Rodolfo Debenedetti, Milan.
