Biography

I am interested in corporate sustainability and have gained several years of professional experience in this field, working both on theoretical foundations (corporate ethics, moral theory) and practical implementation (life-cycle analysis, CSR).

With my work, I want to contribute to normatively ground Corporate Social Responsibility and to base its implementation on scientific evidence and quantitative indicators. In this context, I use Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques to harness the potential of qualitative and quantitative sustainability-related data.
