I have extensive teaching record at all levels: undergraduate, graduate, master and executive courses on a variety of subjects close to my research area. The key distinctive feature of all my courses is that I always couple theoretical knowledge with practical examples taken from my research and real life. Fundamental paradigms and principles are followed by concrete case studies and examples aimed at helping the students understanding the actual value and relevance of what they’re learning.
I am an Associate Professor at the Department of Social and Political Sciences and Associate Dean at SDA Bocconi, Bocconi University. I graduated in Business Administration at Bocconi University and hold an MSc in Health Services Management and PhD in Public Health and Policy, both from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, University of London, UK. I am a scholar in public policy theory and methods, with application of health care. I served as an expert for the European Commission and the Italian Ministry of Health. I facilitated the harmonization of methods between the Health Technology Assessment (HTA) Agencies of the EU Member States and contributed to the development of the National Programme of HTA.
I believe that research can impact society’s wellbeing provided it leverages on the contribution of different disciplines. I believe that the most valuable resources of academic institutions are the students and for this reason, spending time in teaching activities is a privilege. But I also believe that productive researchers are those with multiple interests and I like trekking, hiking, running, traveling, especially with my family and good friends.
My interests are to i) advance methods and theory in the field of public choice and public policy; ii) apply that body of work to practice and policy reform; and iii) help educate students and policymakers through classroom and outside educational initiatives. Ultimately, I am committed to improve the efficiency and equity of the health system through the application of public choice theory and methods. My research is characterised by being interdisciplinary, mostly carried out through large international, mainly EU-based, consortia of scholars, and major collaborative policy development initiatives that span EU policy makers.
