Research Interests

Nurse education; Ethical behaviour; Moral Disengagement; Social cognitive theory; Multivariate data analysis; Counterproductive work behaviour


In 2004 I was awarded a PhD (“Prosociality, Innovation and Collective Efficacy in Educational and Organizational Context”) by Sapienza University of Rome. My thesis was entitled “Determinants of life satisfaction: a comparative analysis in Italy and Bolivia” and was mainly focused on the study of the impact of psychosocial determinants (specifically values and self-efficacy beliefs) on life satisfaction in a sample of adolescents and young adults from Italy and Bolivia. I was then awarded a 2-year Research Fellowship from Sapienza University of Rome on the project “Perception of legality in juvenile contexts”, and from 2010 I worked at the Italian National Institute for the Educational Evaluation of Instruction and Training.In 2012 I was appointed Senior Research Fellow at the Leonard Cheshire Disability, joining the Leonard Cheshire Disability and Inclusive Development Centre at University College London. In this role I have collaborated on a variety of different projects on the themes of inclusive education, livelihoods, and human rights. I joined the PBA Research Centre in August 2014.

Vision Statement

My main research interest is related to the study of the role of moral disengagement in relation to different outcomes (e.g. violent behaviour, transgressive conduct, cheating behaviours, unethical behaviours at work etc). My most recent work focused on the study of how individual factors (e.g. self-efficacy beliefs, moral disengagement) influence work stress and unethical behaviours at work. Furthermore, I am interested in investigating the role of individual factors and characteristics of nursing education in influencing later job stress and well-being of new-graduated nurses.
