I am associate professor of management at the Department of Economics and Management, University of Padova, where I teach Marketing, Advanced Marketing and Management of Creativity.

My research agenda includes issues within the field of management of creativity and innovation in inter-organizational networks. The theoretical focus is on agglomerations (clusters and industrial districts), project based organizations in creative industries and university-industry collaborations in high-tech industries. The main research settings are creative industries (design, music industry), high-tech industries (life science, advanced materials), Italian industrial districts and clusters.

After finishing my PhD in Economics and Management of Firms and Local Sytems at the University of Florence, I obtained a postdoctoral position at the University of Padova, where I’ve been employed as assistant professor of Economics and Management from 2006 to 2015.

During the years I have been involved in a number of national, international and EU research projects, which also lead me to spend several periods of study and research abroad, at the Copenhagen Business School (DK), The University of Tokyo (JP) and the University of Nairobi (Kenya).

I published articles and book chapters in national and international outlets in the field of inter-organizational networks for innovation in clusters and industrial districts.
