Biographical note

I am Full Professor of Economics and Dean of the Undergraduate School.

I am Research Fellow of CEPR (Industrial Organization and Organization Economics groups) and member of the CEPR Research Policy Network for Competitio Policy. Since 2014 I have been member of the EC Economic Advisory Group on Competition Policy. I am Co-Editor of the Journal of Industrial Economics and Associate Editor of the International Journal of Industrial Organization.


In May 2021 I have been appointed member of the CEPR Research Policy Network for Competition Policy, whose aim is to build a community of researchers around a particular topic of high policy relevance and where academic research and collaboration with policy-makers can have a high impact.

Research interests

I am an applied micro-economist, whose research covers the fields of Industrial Organization and Organizational Economics. Much of my work concerns competition policy and the activity of diversified organizations. Regarding Competition Policy, I have extensively studied the economics of exclusionary practices. Recently, I have started investigating the effects of acquisitions of potential competitors and the labor market effects of horizontal mergers. Concerning business groups, I have studied how the activity of Internal Capital Markets and Internal Labor Markets affect the behavior of affiliated firms in response to shocks. Recently I have started exploring whether the activity of ILMs in business groups contributes to alleviating misallocation of labor across sectors.
