I am an Assistant Professor of Strategy with the Department of Management at the University of Toronto Mississauga, cross-appointed to the Rotman School of Management and the Institute for Management and Innovation.

My research interests are at the intersection of growth, innovation and urban economics.

I got my Ph.D. in Economics from Northwestern University in 2016.

I grew up in an insanely historic town in Southern Italy and went to college at Bocconi University in Milan. I have a dual, occasionally conflicting football allegiance: US Lecce and AC Milan.
