I grew up in Corridonia, a small town in the middle of Italy. After high school, I lived in Rome, Dublin, Madrid, Washington DC, Milan, Shanghai, and Brussels. I am currently based in Philadelphia.


I have a BS in Business Administration from LUISS, a MS in Economics and Social Science from Bocconi, a MA in Economics from Penn SAS, and a MA in Statistics from Wharton.


I am a PhD Candidate in Management at the Wharton School. I study innovation in the entrepreneurial context using observational techniques and experimental methods. My Wharton page is here. More about my story is here. I talk about my experience here, here, here, and here.


My dissertation investigates experimentation in early-stage ventures. My committee includes David Hsu (advisor), Dan Levinthal (chair), Alfonso Gambardella, Nicola Lacetera, and Karl Ulrich. The project is funded by the Kauffman Dissertation Fellowship, the Mack Institute for Innovation Management, the Rodney White Center for Financial Research, and the Ackoff Research Fellowship.
