I graduated in Business Economics at LUISS University in Rome and I later obtained my doctorate in Business Economics and Management at Bocconi University.
My areas of scientific interest are focused on the Management of Business Information Systems, with reference to the estimation of performance deriving from the introduction of new technologies, the organisation and governance of digital technologies and innovation, the adoption and use of management information systems in the various production sectors, with a preference for the banking sector.
I was Research Scholar at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Sloan School of Management at the Center for Information System Research. I was then Research Scholar at the Decision and Information Science Department of the University of Florida.
I am currently responsible for Information Systems and Information Management courses at Bocconi University and I am in charge of various courses of the Master in Organization and Personnel (MOP) and the Master in Logistics and Transport Management (MEMIT).
I take part in several national and international research projects also funded by the Ministry of University and Scientific and Technological Research.
Over the years I have been the author of monographs and scientific articles about the impact of technological evolution on companies, which now fall under the broad cap of the so-called digital transformation.
According to the Google Scholar profile, in 2018 my H-Index was 15 with more than 1000 citations to my credit.
