Short Bio: 

I specialize in the history of U.S. foreign economic relations during the Twentieth Century, particularly in international financial and monetary relations, as well as the role of IMF, World Bank and other international economic institutions and the fed in shaping development assistance to the less developed countries (LDCs) and advanced industrial nations during the second half of the twentieth century. I also researched the economic, trade and monetary implications of NATO's rearmament programs in Europe after World War II, as well as the financial aspects of WWI in the internationalization of the Italian and European banking system.
