I was appointed as Lecturer in Commercial Law in the School of Law in September 2014, and in June 2019 I was promoted to Senior Lecturer. Before taking up this post, I was a post-doctoral research associate in the "Tipping Points Project" between June 2013 and its termination in June 2015, at Durham University (Law School and Institute of Hazard Risk and Resilience). I worked on Work Package two of the project, focusing on multidisciplinary research on the global financial crisis in the banking sector. The project was funded by the Leverhulme Trust.
Previously (2011 - 2013) I was a Lecturer in Law at Kingston University where I taught in the areas of company, commercial and financial law. In 2012 I was awarded a PhD in Corporate and Financial Law from the University of Manchester, where I also taught company law as an associate lecturer for a semester. Between March and September 2013 I was involved in the review of the OECD finance instruments, a project commissioned to the University of Edinburgh.
Prior to joining academia, I was a practising lawyer, in Italy initially where I was called to the bar, and then in Monaco and in the UK where I worked in in-house positions.
My main teaching and research interests lie in the areas of Corporate Law, Corporate Governance, Structured Finance and Financial Regulation.
