I am Dean of the PhD School at Bocconi University. Since March 2021, I am the Italian Delegate for the European Innovation Council and European Innovation Ecosystem within Horizon Europe.
Before joining Bocconi, I was a faculty member (1998-2012) of the Department of Business Administration at University Carlos III (Madrid), which I chaired during the period 2009-2011. I also taught at Boston University, IESE Business School and Carnegie Mellon University.
I am an Associate Editor of Management Science.
My research lies at the intersection between technology and innovation management and strategy. My recently published articles examine the timing of startup sale, corporate social responsibility in multinational enterprises and the relationship between competition and technology search strategies.
