A son of Monfalcone, Italy, I built my career and life in the United States. I teach at the University of Mississippi; I am married to Shuang Cheng.

My research fits in two broad areas: geopolitics, especially the interplay between firms' internationalization and State restructuring, and the geography of ideologies. 

I teach courses on the international dimension of public policy to selected undergraduate students majoring in Public Policy Leadership .

I served my institution and the discipline of Geography in a variety of committees and task forces, as well as serving as book editor and guest editor in journal special issues.
