Welcome to my page!
I am Associate Professor at Sapienza University of Rome and John H. Dunning Fellow at Henley Business School, University of Reading.
I work in the areas of international business and global strategy. I am also interested in the interactions between institutions, individuals, organizations and markets, and in the behavioral aspects of corporate and individual decision-making.
Specifically, I have addressed my research agenda by developing three research trajectories:
First, I study the links between institutions and the global strategy of multinational enterprises. In this domain, my work focuses on ownership and corporate governance mechanisms and their interaction with home/host country institutional configurations as drivers of firm international strategies.
Second, I investigate how economic policies as well as ex-ante and ex-post market regulation (e.g., price regulation, competition for the market, antitrust, etc...) change the institutional architecture of industries, thus shaping markets and organizations.
Finally, I explore the evolution of public services from the perspectives of both service providers and users. I study how they interact with one another and with the institutional environment in order to address the challenges of resource conservation, static and dynamic efficiency, and universal access.
My research has been published in journals such as Journal of International Business Studies, Journal of Law and Economics and Regional Studies.
I serve on the Editorial Boards of Global Strategy Journal and Journal of Industrial and Business Economics.
I teach Industrial Organization, Econometrics and Management Control Systems in Undergraduate and Graduate courses.
I am a cinephile and a keen football fan.
