I am an Assistant Professor of Strategy at Bocconi University's Department of Management and Technology.
My research primarily focuses on understanding patterns of change triggered by firm's problem solving activities. I examine these activities across multiple contexts – renewable electricity, pharmaceuticals, 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 board of Strategic Management Journal.
My research has been recognized by Bocconi Research Awards (2014, 2016, 2019), 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).
