Senior (Tenure-Track) Assistant Professor in Work and Organizational Psychology (WOP) at the Human Sciences Department of Verona University. My expertise lies in organizational behavior, individual differences and decision-making at work, and social dynamics in the applied psychology field. In the field of fundamental research my studies explore the role of individual antecedents (e.g., Personality traits, Risk attitudes, etc.) in relation to classic I/O models (e.g., Job Demands-Resources model, Effort-Reward model, etc.). My applied research focuses on the development of interventions and policies for enhancing decision-making, and in turn well-being and job performance. Finally, in industrial research, my research aims to better integrate cognitive and behavioral theories (e.g., Theory of Planned Behavior, Prospect theory, etc.) for designing predictive models – based on agents – of social and organizational behaviors. 

Research groups

APRESO - Applied Research in Society and Organizations
APRESO (Applied Research in Society and Organizations) is the name of a group of scholars and practitioners dealing with research and interventions in social and work and organizational psychology fields. As for the social field, members of APRESO deal, for example, with dynamics of cooperation and competition, self-centered (selfish) and other-centered (altruistic) behaviors, the phenomenon of volunteering and social innovation. As for work and organizational psychology, members of APRESO deal, for example, with learning and training, differences between different professional roles, work socialization and organizational innovation. APRESO adopts a scientist-practitioner approach according to which research is oriented by practical needs and interventions are designed based on those models that have obtained valid and reliable empirical support. Finally, APRESO makes use of both qualitative and quantitative approaches, as well as mixed methods, in order to carry out studies and implement interventions, annexing scholars from different fields of social research (psychologists, pedagogists, sociologists, economists, etc.).
