Born in 1972, Maria Elena Paladini has had a very varied and multidisciplinary professional career. Having attended the Classical High School in Italy, she discovered a deep love for literature and poetry but her interest in scientific subjects led her to obtain a degree in Economics and Commerce. She became a researcher at the Polytechnic University of the Marche in Italy where she completed her PhD. In this academic environment she became very aware of the importance of a thorough knowledge of economic principles for everyone. Since adolescence, she has always loved writing as a pastime and after the birth of her first child, decided to unite that love with her professional experience to write stories which present the subject of economics to children.
