My research examines the historical intersections of global capitalism and international governance, particularly in the context of contemporary Europe. These themes are central to my current monograph project, which reconstructs the making of the Single European Market through the lens of corporations (under contract with Cambridge University Press), and to my recent article publications in Relations Internationales, Business & Politics, the Business History Review (forthcoming), and Business History (forthcoming). Before joining the Department of Social and Political Sciences as Assistant Professor of Economic History, I held positions at Harvard Business School, the Graduate Institute Geneva, and the European University Institute.

By taking a highly interactive pedagogical approach, I aim to empower students to engage with challenging concepts, develop strong analytical skills, and formulate their own original arguments. At Bocconi, I teach on themes related to my research across both undergraduate and graduate degree programs.
