Courses previous a.y.
I joined the Finance Department at Bocconi University in 2016. From 2010 to 2016, I was Assistant Professor and later Associate Professor of Finance at Tilburg University (Netherlands). I obtained my Ph.D. from INSEAD (Fontainebleau, France), and I did my undergraduate studies at the Universities of Pisa, Turin (Italy), and the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna (Pisa, Italy). I spent visiting periods at Nova SBE (Lisbon, Portugal) and at the University of California’s Merage School of Business (Irvine, California).
My research focus is on financial intermediation (bank and non-bank intermediaries).
