Courses a.y. 2023/2024

Biographical note

I earned my BA in Economics at the University of Trieste and my Ph.D. in Economics at the University of Chicago. Before joining Bocconi University, I taught at Columbia University and the University of Southern California.

Since I joined Bocconi, I have been teaching undergraduate, graduate, and Ph.D. courses on Investments, Quantitative Finance and Derivatives Pricing, and Asset Pricing.

At Bocconi, I served as founding Dean of the Ph.D. School from 2004 to 2008, and as Dean for International Affairs from 2008 to 2012. I am currently the head of the Department of Finance.

My research interests are in Quantitative Finance and Asset Pricing.

I am a research fellow at IGIER and BAFFI CAREFIN.
