Biographical note

I joined the Finance Department at Bocconi University in 2016. From 2010 to 2016, I was Assistant Professor and later Associate Professor of Finance at Tilburg University (Netherlands). I obtained my Ph.D. from INSEAD (Fontainebleau, France), and I did my undergraduate studies at the Universities of Pisa, Turin (Italy), and the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna (Pisa, Italy). I spent visiting periods at Nova SBE (Lisbon, Portugal), the University of California’s Merage School of Business (Irvine, California), and CEMFI (Madrid, Spain). My research interests are mainly in the areas of corporate finance and financial intermediation.

Research interests

My research focus is on financial intermediation (bank and non-bank intermediaries).
