Biographical note

I am Assistant Professor at the Department of Social and Political Sciences at Bocconi University. 

Previously I held post-doctoral fellowships at Harvard Business School and Marshall Business School (USC). I received my PhD from Copenhagen Business School with a thesis on the development of the palm oil cluster in Southeast Asia since colonial times.


About

My research focuses on global history of commodity markets in Southeast Asia; clusters in historical perspective; and business history of emerging markets since the 19th century. Recently I started new projects on historical entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial ecosystems in different historical and geographical contexts.
