Courses a.y. 2024/2025

Biographical note

I earned my BA in Economics at the University of Trieste and my Ph.D. in Economics at the University of Chicago. Before joining Bocconi University, I taught at Columbia University and the University of Southern California.

Since I joined Bocconi, I have been teaching undergraduate, graduate, and Ph.D. courses on Investments, Quantitative Finance and Derivatives Pricing, and Asset Pricing.

At Bocconi, I served as founding Dean of the Ph.D. School from 2004 to 2008, and as Dean for International Affairs from 2008 to 2012, as Head of the Department of Finance from 2019 to 2022.

My research interests are in Quantitative Finance and Asset Pricing.

I am a research fellow at IGIER and BAFFI CAREFIN.
