I am Senior Lecturer in the Business School and part of the London Centre for Business and Entrepreneurship Research. I joined LSBU in 2020 having worked at Deloitte as pricing specialist.
I teach Business Research Methods and topics related to research methodologies.
I am interested in social dynamics that take place via communications. The core of my research interest is the analysis of textual data for financial and economic applications.
My research activity is devoted to quantify qualitative information.
In particular, I have spent the last few years studying political communications and the role they have in the financial markets. Furthermore, I have experience in financial derivative evaluation and financial data analysis.
