I have received my PhD from Imperial College Business School in 2013 and I have been a visiting scholar at the MIT Sloan School of Management in 2015. My research focuses on the determinants of knowledge production and transfer, inside and outside academia. Specifically, I study how academic researchers produce scientific knowledge and how this knowledge is transferred to industry and society at large. I am also interested in the role universities have in stimulating local entrepreneurship. My work has been published in leading innovation and management journals, such as Research Policy and Journal of Management Studies. I am an officer of the DRUID society and a Representative-at-Large for the TIM division at AoM.
