Armando Di Lillo
Visiting Study Fellow
Armando Di Lillo holds a BSc in Economics and Banking from the University of Siena (Italy), and an MSc in Money, Banking and Finance from Lancaster University Management School (UK), where he was awarded a full scholarship for academic excellence and potential development.
Armando is currently a second year PhD student in Economics at IMT School for Advanced Studies, Lucca, Italy. His research focuses on the diffusion process of public attitudes towards immigration across Europe over the past decade. He is also interested in looking at evidence on the links between immigration and crime, assessing the impact of implemented asylum policies on public finances, and scrutinising the existence (and, if so, the sign and magnitude) of a relationship between the length of asylum application procedures and crime rates.
