Hello there, This is Lakshmi. Welcome to my personal website! I am an Assistant Professor (Research) at Department of Business and Management, LUISS Guido Carli University (Rome, Italy).
Before joining LUISS, I was an Assistant Professor at Utrecht University, The Netherlands (2016-2020) and a PhD candidate at Università della Svizzera italiana, Switzerland (2012-2016).
