After my Marie Skłodowska-Curie post-doctoral fellowship, more than twenty years ago, I re-joined the Alliance Manchester Business School in April 2020 as Professor of Accounting, Governance and Society.

From January 2021, I am the Director of the Centre for the Analysis of Investment Risk (CAIR)


Prior to Manchester, I held positions at University of Edinburgh Business School (where I was Chair of Accounting, Governance and Social innovation and co-director of the Centre for Accounting and Society), at IE Business School, Madrid (where I was Professor of Accounting and Management Control) and at Saïd Business School (SBS), (where I was Reader in Accounting and Official Student, i.e. fellow of Christ Church). At Oxford, I am still an Associate fellow of SBS and an Honorary Senior Research Fellow of Italian Studies at Oxford, which I co-founded during my time there.

I am currently co-Editor-in-Chief of Organization Studies.


I hold a Doctorate from the University of Catania (Italy).

I am a Dottore commercialista (Italian for Chartered Public Accountant) and Revisore contabile (Italian for Auditor).
