In 2011 I joined the University of Rome La Sapienza, where I am currently Full Professor of Economics. I teach Economics (BSc), Advanced Microeconomics (MSc) and Information Economics (MSc). I previously taught at the University of Urbino, Italy and London School of Economics and Political Science, UK.

Ph.D. and a M.Phil. in Economics at the London School of Economics, a  M. Sc. in Economics at the Université Catholique de Louvain and a B.Sc. as well as a Doctorate in Economics at the University of Rome La Sapienza.

Since January 2016 I am the Editor-in-chief of Annals of Public and Cooperative Economics a journal published by Wiley-Blackwell.  

I have recently coordinated the European Working Group on Organization and Governance in Social Economy Enterprises sponsored by CIRIEC International.

Since 2014 I am in the program chair of the 
Oligo Workshop, an international workshop devoted to the topics of oligopoly and game theoryOligo Workshop 2014,  Oligo Workshop 2015Oligo Workshop 2016, Oligo Workshop 2017 and Oligo Workshop 2018Oligo Workshop 2019

I am member of CREI, member of the Scientific Commitee of CIRIEC International for Social Economy, fellow of the Game Theory Society and of the European Economic Association for Industrial Economics and of Societa Italiana degli Economisti.

My research lies at the intersection between Game Theory, Microeconomics, Industrial Organization and Public Economics. My most recent papers focus on the stability of cooperation among coalitions and groups, on the effects of firms' collusive agreements in vertically differentatiated markets and on the cooperation between non-profits organizations.
