After 6 years of experience in auditing, banking and strategy consulting, I decided to pursue an academic career that would provide me both new intellectual challenges and the methodological tools I would need to address them.
I chose to join IE because it seemed to offer the perfect mix: a rigorous program, potential collaborations with outstanding faculty members, but also the warm atmosphere and the kind support of a “family-like” PhD Office.
After graduating, I want to stay in academia. It’s a unique experience to enjoy such freedom, to confront oneself to so many intellectual challenges, to work with colleagues from all over the world and to get a chance to make a contribution at the same time.
My research lies at the intersection between International Corporate Governance and International Management. In particular, my dissertation studies how firm ownership, in several of its dimensions, impacts firms’ strategy and performance. On one hand, I focus on ownership form and investigate under which country and industry contingencies public listing increases (decreases) managerial discretion and facilitates (impedes) firm expansion. On the other hand, I investigate how being affiliated to a multinational company impacts subsidiaries’ outcomes, and how the munificence of a parent company’s home market influences its subsidiaries’ investment and productivity.
