Biographical note

I am an Assistant Professor of Accounting Analytics and Data Science. I graduated in Astrophysics and Space Physics from Università Degli Studi di Milano-Bicocca and hold a PhD in Applied and Computational Statistics from Politecnico di Milano.


About

Beyond research, I enjoy music and photography. I love to watch documentaries and love everything that is sci-fi and tech. In particular, I like to discover new software that is both open-source and useful. Last, space has always been my passion and I try to keep myself up-to-date with the latest news from the outer worlds.


Research interests

My research mainly uses computational and statistical techniques to understand firms’ behavior. In particular, I adopt and develop Natural Language Processing methods and language models to understand the effect of financial and non-financial disclosure over key financial performance. I work with annual reports, conference calls, sustainability reports, M&A press releases and shareholder proposals. In addition, I study the economic effects of Blockchain and other types of Distributed Ledger Systems and how these can facilitate the development of new streams of research together with a change in the practice of Accounting. I am an active developer of open-source tools (mainly in R) which can be used by anyone.
