I graduated from the Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa with a Ph.D. in Financial Mathematics. I also hold a degree in Mathematics from University of Udine. I joined Bocconi University right after my doctorate, and since then I have been teaching undergraduate, graduate, and Ph.D. courses in Calculus, Quantitative Finance, Derivatives Pricing, Numerical Methods for Finance, and Continuous-Time Finance.
My research interests are in Quantitative Finance. I am a research fellow at IGIER and Baffi Carefin.
I have been the Director of the MaFinRisk program (Specialized Master in Quantitative Finance and Risk Management) since 2020/21.
My research area is quantitative finance, with a special focus on asset/derivatives pricing, asset allocation, and optimal stopping. I have published in several academic journals, including Economic Theory, Journal of Economic Dynamics and Control, Management Science, Quantitative Finance, and Review of Derivatives Research. I act as referee for a number of academic publications.
