Research interests

From The Times Higher Education World University Rankings, to products' reviews on eBay, or to friends recommending restaurants and books, we are immersed in a network of evaluations about individuals, places, goods, companies or even institutions. Knowing others' reputations allows us to make predictions about their behaviors, and being effective in managing one's own reputation is crucial for social inclusion. 

In my research I am interested in identifying the conditions under which reputation and gossip might support or hamper cooperation in different setting. I am especially interested in social sustainability and on the mechanisms promoting it. I recently started working on the network dynamics of cooperation in organizations.
