I am an Associate Professor of Strategy in the Department of Management and Technology at Bocconi University. I am affiliated with the research centers IEP@BU, BIDSA, and the vice-director of ICRIOS.

My research focuses on understanding how the decisions and actions of firms impact their natural and political environment. I explore these dynamics in various contexts such as renewable electricity, early-stage entrepreneurship, waste generation, and corporate lobbying. My research has been published in Strategic Management Journal, Management Science, Organization Science and Academy of Management Journal. I am currently an Associate Editor at the Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal

I have been elected to be a Rep-at-Large for the Knowledge & Innovation Group of the SMS (2015-2017), a member of the Executive Committee for the STR Division of the AoM (2018-2020), and the TIM Division of the AoM (2022-2024). I serve on the editorial board of Strategic Management Journal, Organization Science, and Strategy Science.

My research has received recognition through Bocconi Research Awards in 2014, 2016, 2019, and 2022, as well as Bocconi Research Grants totaling €50,000 in 2015, 2021, and 2022. Recently, I secured a Cariplo Foundation Grant amounting to €197,000 for the period 2024-2026. Together with Miguel Espinosa, I organize the Bocconi Non-market strategy workshop.
