My current work mainly focuses on the application of machine learning in quantitative marketing. In particular, I am working on new approaches for emotion detection and investigating new business models (e.g., music streaming). Over the years, I visited the NYU Stern School of Business (New York, USA), the University of New South Wales (Sydney, Australia), and Bocconi (Milan, Italy) as a guest researcher.
