Personal profile


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. 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.

Research interests

My research lies at the intersection of finance and corporate law, and it explores specific issues of financial regulation and corporate governance. 

I am interested in regulation especially in the context of business organisations. In December 2013 I joined the "Sustainable Companies" project and contributed with a paper at a conference held at the University of Oslo. My work in this field looks specifically at the regulation of corporate decision-making.

More recently I followed the regulatory developments aimed at restarting the securitisation market in the EU in the context of the capital markets union. In July 2015 I presented my research at a conference held at the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies in London; in September 2015 I was invited by the Group of the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats in the European Parliament to provide my opinion on the securitisation issues in relation to EU Capital Markets Union (CMU). This was followed by an intervention in July 2017 at a roundtable organised by the Centre for European Policy Studies and European Capital Markets Institute on the Mid-Term Review of the Capital Markets Union Action Plan ( ).

My work on securitisation and Capital Markets Union has appeared on the Foundation for European Progressive Studies' website: (; on the working paper series of CEPS/ECMI (, and it has been cited by the EU Parliament: ( ), twice by Bloomberg ( , and by the Wall Street Journal ( ). 

In February 2020 I was invited to speak at the Finance Summit hosted in Paris by POLITICO and L'AGEFI on questions of Capital Markets Union and EU financial regulation ( ).   

Recently I started writing on the regulation of fintech, particularly in the context of financial intermediation conducted on fintech platforms. 

I am also writing a monograph on the law, regulation and policy of debt capital markets. 

I am happy to supervise doctoral students in the above areas of research.
