Full Professor of Economic Policy

Department of Economics and Statistics, U Siena

I am an applied economist at the University of Siena. I have been Visiting Scholar at the University of Cambridge and at the UCLA, Research Associate at the EUI and consultant for the OECD.

My research is at the intersection between organizational economics, industrial economics and economic policy. I have a strong interest in the relationship between technological change and institutions (including corporate governance, innovation policy, labour and environmental regulations). Currently, I am leading a project on patents, technology and firm resilience funded by WIPO (United Nations). My work has been published in academic journals such as the Review of Economic Dynamics, the Journal of Economics and Management Strategy, the Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization, the Journal of Comparative Economics, Economica and Research Policy.
