I am an Assistant Professor of Accounting Analytics and Data Science at Bocconi University. I graduated in Astrophysics and Space Physics from Università Degli Studi di Milano-Bicocca and obtained a Ph.D. in Applied and Computational Statistics from Politecnico di Milano. I have served as a reviewer for the following journals: Journal of Accounting and Public Policy, Finance Research Letters, Journal of Business, Finance, and Accounting, and Applied Stochastic Models in Business and Industry. I consider myself an active developer of open-source tools.
Beyond research, I enjoy music and photography. I love to watch documentaries and love everything that is sci-fi and tech. In particular, I like to discover new software that is both open-source and useful. Last, space has always been my passion and I try to keep myself up-to-date with the latest news from the outer worlds.
My research employs computational and statistical approaches to gain insights into the behavior of companies and investors' perceptions. Specifically, I use and enhance Natural Language Processing techniques and language models to examine the impact of financial and non-financial disclosures on key financial performance. Additionally, I leverage Deep Learning-based Computer Vision methods to extract visual information from financial disclosures. Furthermore, I investigate the economic implications of Blockchain and other Distributed Ledger Systems, exploring their potential to foster novel research avenues and revolutionize accounting practices. Finally, I work on time-to-event models and their stochastic properties to study the dynamic process that generate the observable accounting information at hand.
