I have been recently awarded a Ph.D. cum laude in Management at Bocconi University. I will join INSEAD (Asia campus) as an Assistant Professor of  Entrepreneurship and Family Enterprise in September 2020. 


My research focuses on experimentation in new entrepreneurial firms. Throughout my research, I investigate the implications of experimentation for a number of firm-level outcomes that mark the development of early-stage entrepreneurial firms (such as business idea identification, funding, and first-product commercialization).


To this end, I built a research program that has resulted in one published paper and a number of other projects that are currently underway. This interest is coupled with strong industry involvement in entrepreneurial circles. My work vision is to identify a set of best practices that help entrepreneurs navigate the early phases of new venture creation.


Outside of academia, I am an award-winning baker and global traveler. I have collected memories and photographs from 31 countries across four continents.
