I gained an BA and a MSc degree in Accountancy in Italy. After completing a three-year accounting training period I gained a PhD in Business Administration from the University of Urbino (Italy). I spent six months at DePaul University (Chicago US) as a PhD visiting student. Once back to Italy I worked at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia as a postdoc whilst providing consulting to private and public organisations. In 2013 I relocated to the UK and worked at Liverpool Hope University as Lecturer in Accounting and Head of the Accounting and Finance cluster. I joined the University of Leicester in September 2016 where I lecture in Accounting and I oversee the accounting and finance programmes at both UG and PG level as Director of Learning and Teaching of the Economics Finance and Accounting department. I have over a decade of experience in teaching accountancy modules as well as a variety of publications in international journals and presentations at international conferences.


My research interests are: performance management non-financial reporting and accountability in private and public organisations.
