I am a Fellow in Decision Science in the Department of Management of the London School of Economics and Political Science. My areas of expertise focus on two main themes. The first one is Decision Analysis and, in particular, the modelling of judgments that can be used in public policy making and management contexts. The second one is environmental impact assessment of projects, policies and programmes, paying particular attention to their spatial dimension. From the synergic blend of these two areas, my research interests focus on exploring behavioural issues in spatial decision making processes and on developing judgement-based analytics for supporting innovative policy design. One of my papers, concerning the integration of Decision Analysis and Spatial Analysis for locational decisions, was awarded the Wiley Practice Prize by the International Society on Multi-Criteria Decision Making in 2011. My Ph.D. thesis received the Giorgio Leonardi best Ph.D. thesis award in 2012 within the XXXIII Annual Scientific Conference of the Italian Association on Regional Sciences. My most recent research projects, one dealing with the deployment of a multi-methodology intervention to support underprivileged children selection for educational programs and the other dealing with the use of Decision Analytics to design and evaluate regeneration strategies for disused railways, have been awarded the first place in the INFORMS 2017 Decision Analysis Practice Award and the second place in the INFORMS 2017 Innovative Application of Analytics Award, respectively.
I hold research visiting positions at the London School of Economics (UK), at the University of Pittsburgh (USA), at the University of Southern California (USA), at the CNRS LAMSADE Laboratory in Paris (France), at the Faculty of Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation – ITC of the University of Twente in Enschede (The Netherlands), at the Institute of Mathematical Sciences of Madrid (ICMAT, Spain), at the University of Adger (Grimstad, Norway) and at the Systems Analysis Laboratory in Aalto University in Helsinki (Finland). Moreover, I hold invited teaching positions at the Blavatnik School of Government of the University of Oxford (UK), at Ecole Centrale Paris (France) and at the University of Trento (Italy).
