I am an assistant professor in the Department of Management and Technology at Bocconi University. I earned my PhD in Organizational Behavior and Theory at the Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University, where I was awarded the Herbert A. Simon Doctoral Dissertation Award in Behavioral Research in the Administrative Sciences.
My research uses a multimethod approach to understand mechanisms and returns to informal network relationships defined within and across organizations. I am also interested in investigating the origins and evolution of social network structures, with a special emphasis on the link between formal organizational structures and informal social relationships.
Prior to my doctoral studies, I received a Master of Science in Management from Bocconi University and a Bachelor of Science in Economics and Management from University of Rome Tor Vergata.
