I study the international politics of state-business relations. I am interested in the construction, enforcement and effects of state laws and international institutions that regulate firms’ behaviors.
I am currently studying for a PhD degree in the Department of Government at the University of Essex. I received a Master’s degree in International Relations and Diplomatic Sciences, specialisation in International Political Economy (full marks and honours) from the University of Bologna (IT), and a Bachelor degree in Philosophy (full marks and honours) from the University of Milan (IT).
I have also undertaken research experiences at the University of Groningen (NL), at the École Normale Superieure – Paris School of Economics (FR), and at the Université Paris 1 – Panthéon Sorbonne (FR).
My research is mainly in international political economy. I mainly study multinational corporations and international institutions or international law. I particularly focus on anti-corruption corporate policies. I mostly apply quantitative methods to my area of study.
I teach Introduction to Quantitative Methods (PUBL0055).
