Professor of Finance
My main research interests lie in the area of entrepreneurial finance, venture capital and private equity but I am also interested in the assessment of the impact of public sector initiatives to promote regional entrepreneurship. My work has been published in international peer-reviewed journals such as Research Policy (2020), Economic Bulletin (2020, 2018), Venture Capital (2018), Journal of Business Venturing (2015), Small Business Economics (2013), European Journal of Operational Research (2013), and Research in International Business and Finance (2011). I also won several best paper awards such as the FMA Applied Finance Conference Best Paper Award (2017), the Coller Institute of Venture (Runner-up Prize, 2016), the Best Paper in Corporate and Entrepreneurial Finance award (AFFI, 2016).
