Welcome! You can find my CV here.

I am an Assistant Professor of Finance at the Trulaske College of Business at the University of Missouri.

My research focuses on the intersection of corporate finance and investments. Specifically, I try to identify important risks faced by firms and investors, and their implications for financial and economic outcomes.

I received a Ph.D. in Finance from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in May 2020. 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 skiing, playing soccer, and cooking. Before attending college, I played professional and semi-professional soccer in Italy.
