About me

Born and raised in Genoa, Italy, I had the chance to get in touch with different cultures from an early age. 

After having occupied managerial roles in the retail fashion industry, I decided to pursue a career in research and academia. During the second year of my doctoral studies, I spent a semester at Georgia State University in CIBER as a visiting scholar. Here, I had the opportunity to participate in doctoral seminars, share the experience with insightful colleagues, and learn from renowned international scholars. 

The combination of International Business education and industry experience in retailing nourished my curiosity of International Entrepreneurship. Specifically, my main areas of interest include entrepreneurial exit, family business, sustainability, and fashion. 

Currently, I have a research grant on "Industry 4.0, global value chains and sustainable management: the role of 3D printing" at the University of Pavia, Italy.
