I am an Associate Professor of Strategy at Bocconi University's Department of Management and Technology.

My research focuses on understanding patterns of change triggered by firm's problem solving activities.  I examine these activities across multiple contexts – renewable electricity, and waste generation – with special emphasis on contexts of environmental significance. 

In a more recent secondary stream of research, I explore phenomena that capture nascent entrepreneurial activities – both in emerging and developed markets.

My research across both streams has been published in Strategic Management Journal, Management Science, Organization Science, and Academy of Management Journal.  I also contribute to Footnote about my research, and serve on the editorial boards of Strategic Management Journal and Strategic Organization.

My research has been recognized by Bocconi Research Awards (2014, 2016, 2019, 2021), and a Bocconi Research Grant for €10,000 (2015). 

I have been elected to be a Rep-at-Large for the Knowledge & Innovation Group of the SMS (2015-2017) and a member of the Executive Committee for the STR Division of the AoM (2018-2020). I have recently been appointed an Associate Editor at the Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal.
