I am the Principal Investigator of a 4-years project funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) titled "Multinational Corporations: On the relation between the complexity of the knowledge base and the geographical and functional structure of the business group" (608'345 CHF).

Before joining Bocconi, I was Assistant Professor at the University of Geneva and Research Fellow at the LSE.

Research interests

My research focuses on the role of human capital in shaping labor market, innovation and entrepreneurial outcomes. Among others, I study how individual preferences and constraints relate relate to individual decisions and ultimately affect career progression, sorting across projects and organizations, or ventures’ success.

My second stream of research looks at the functioning of business groups and how their geographic structure relates to corporate strategy and performance.
