About Me

I will be available for interviews in January 2020 at the AFA meetings in San Diego.

Welcome! You can find my CV here.

I'm a Ph.D. Candidate in Finance at the Kenan-Flagler Business School at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.

My research interests range from empirical corporate finance, institutional investors, to private equity. I am most interested in understanding the many risks corporations face and the intersection of public and private capital markets.

I earned B.S. and M.Sc. (summa cum laude) in Finance from Bocconi University. While at Bocconi, I spent a semester at the University of California, San Diego, and at the University of Florida.

Prior to the Ph.D., I worked for the Debt Capital Markets (DCM) and Structured Finance team of Mediobanca, an Italian investment bank. In June 2015, I passed level 2 of the CFA® program.

My hobbies include running, soccer, and cooking. Before attending college, I played professional and semi-professional soccer in Italy.
