research focuses on insurance and risk management. For my PhD, I have been
working on a theory for insurance contract design under (sub)optimal
policyholder behaviour. I am also investigating the determinants of hedging
demand in the insurance sector, more precisely reinsurance demand, and whether
risk transfer may give rise to systemic risk. Finally, I am studying the
properties of the loss distribution of large commercial risks worldwide, for
different types of property and risk, and how solvency capital requirements
should be set.
always liked maths. It’s often seen as abstract, but it’s very applicable in daily life. I like to explain to people how
it works and how it can help you make better decisions. With Oasis, we help
people to make their decisions around catastrophes. I’m Italian and, for
example, in Italy we have many earthquakes. A few years ago, we even had a
small tornado. It destroyed everything in its path and farmers suffered a lot.
Oasis can help countries to adapt to these phenomena and the results of climate
change. It would be great if Italy would also become an Oasis user.
