Curriculum Accademico

I am an assistant professor in Bocconi University’s Department of Management and Technology. I received my Ph.D. in Organizational Behavior and Theory from the Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University, where I was awarded the Herbert A. Simon Doctoral Dissertation Award in Behavioral Research in the Administrative Sciences. Prior to my doctoral studies, I received a Master of Science in Management from Bocconi University and a Bachelor of Science in Economics and Management from University of Rome Tor Vergata.

My research uses a multimethod approach to understand how social networks create competitive advantage for individuals and organizations. I am also interested in investigating the origins and evolution of social network structures, with special emphasis on the link between formal organizational arrangements and informal social relationships. My work has been published in Administrative Science Quarterly, Academy of Management Journal, and Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes. I serve as an ad-hoc reviewer for several journals, including Management Science, Academy of Management Journal, Journal of Management, and Journal of Management Studies.
