What I do
I'm an economist interested in digital platforms: how they grow, how they benefit their users, and what opportunities and challenges they create for competitors and policymakers. I'm also passionate about data science: I don't just use it for my research, I teach it... to my students, my friends, and my kids!
What I care about
I'm passionate about finding answers to difficult questions, especially because finding those answers allows me to work with smart colleagues and students.
I am also passionate about my Italian heritage, especially food and soccer!
How I connect to the D^3 Mission
Digital platforms are one of the biggest business changes of the past few decades. Understanding how they grow and compete, identifying the opportunities and addressing the challenges they create for society are at the core of my research... and the D^3's mission!
