I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Management and Technology at Bocconi University.

My research interests are situated at the intersection of behavioral decision making, entrepreneurship and strategy.

My work explores the behavioral foundations of entry into entrepreneurship and incentive contracts. I examine how behavioral mechanisms (e.g. ambiguity aversion, perception of time, reference dependence) and cognitive biases (e.g. overconfidence) influence entrepreneurs and managers’ willingness to take risk. Empirically, I use methodologies and models from experimental economics and decision sciences.

My research has been published in Organization Science, the Journal of Risk and Uncertainty and Strategic Organization.

My research has been recognized by the 2016 Best Empirical Paper Award of the Entrepreneurship Division at the Academy of Management and the 2018 Best Dissertation Award (2nd place) at INFORMS Technology, Innovation Management and Entrepreneurship.

I also serve on the editorial board of Strategic Management Journal.
