I recently graduated from the with a first class degree in Economics and Econometrics from the University of York. In the previous academic year I took part in a yearlong exchange at the University of Hong Kong, after which I traveled to Nepal where I spent two months as a statistical research intern at the Institute for Integrated Development Studies. This coming autumn I will move to Sweden, where I will be studying for a Masters in Statistics at Uppsala University. I am fluent in English and Italian, capable of conversing in French, and having spent a year in Hong Kong am able to understand some (very little!) Cantonese.
I have deferred masters offers to study Statistics and Mathematical Economics at Uppsala University and Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne respectively. On the advice of my supervisory, however, I am currently applying to the MSc in Statistical Science at Oxford.
I am a blogger for the Huffington Post, as well as writing occasional articles for various other publications.
