I am full professor of applied economics and director of the MSc EMIT - Economics and Management of Innovation and Technology. I earned a PhD from the Marche Polytechnic University and completed a two years post-doc Marie Curie fellowship at MERIT (Maastricht Economic Research Institute on Innovation and Technology). I am Associate Program Chair of the Knowledge and Innovation IG of the Strategic Management Society.
My work focuses on inventors’ job motivations and knowledge transmission during the inventive process. My most recent research studies the career effects of overwork and temporal flexibility for women. I also investigate why there are so few women in innovation, and the processes through which they select in and out from the inventive profession.
