My main research interest concerns the economics of science. In particular, I am interested in the empirical analysis of scientists' productivity, career, teaching quality, and propensity to engage in technology transfer activities. A second line of research concerns the industrial dynamic and how it relates to innovation. Finally, I am attracted by all methodological aspects functional to my research work such as, the study of specific econometric problems, data quality issues, simulation, and network analysis.
I received my Ph.D. in Economics and Technology Management from University of Bergamo. I am currently associate professor at the University of Nice, research fellow at ICRIOS, Bocconi University and at BRICK, Collegio Carlo Alberto. I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Chair of Economics and Management of Innovation, EPFL, Bicocca University, and University of Brescia. My current research interests include innovation and economics of science. My work has been published in Research Policy, Industrial and Corporate Change, Journal of Evolutionary Economics, Industry and Innovation, Scientometrics, Journal of Artificial Societies and Social Simulation, Revue Economique, and PlosOne.
