Personal details

I joined the (then) School of Management in September 2013. I received my undergraduate and Masters degrees in Business Administration at the University of Bologna, Forli Campus (Italy). I also have an MSc in Finance from the University of Leicester.

In 2012, I completed my PhD studies in Business Administration (with specialisation in Accounting) at the University of Pisa (Italy). During my doctoral course, I was involved in several research projects concerning both social reporting and performance measurement in public service organisations. I was also a teaching assistant at the University of Bologna in accounting and finance related subjects. In 2014, I became Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and in 2015, I obtained my Postgraduate Certificate in Academic and Professional Practice.
