Location: Headington, Clerici 1.27

I hold a doctorate in Organization Theory from the University of Milan, Bicocca. After studying in Rome, Copenhagen and Milan, I started my academic career in Italy before moving to the University of Helsinki and then the University of Nottingham, China. I then moved back to Europe, spending four years at Manchester Metropolitan University before arriving at Oxford Brookes in 2016. My main research contributions relate to the co-operative sector, including Chinese co-operatives. I also work on employment relations and inequality and I have further interests in the study of time, the past, and history in management and organizational studies. My research has maintained three consistent characteristics across my career to date: its collaborative genesis, its openness to the benefits and challenges of interdisciplinarity, and its concern with approaching its objects of study using the insights and methods of history. Please follow the link to explore and download my publications.
