Alessandro Villa

I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Economics at Duke University.

My main research interests lie in macroeconomics and financial economics. In particular, I am interested in financial contracting and firm dynamics, optimal fiscal policy and heterogeneous agents.

Before starting to be interested in economics I was a computer engineer, my previous life shaped my current interest in computational methods.
