After completing his studies in Engineering and Management, Tommaso has worked as an Industrial Engineer around logistics in the automotive industry, dealing with lean manufacturing and digitalisation programs.

Tommaso’s research investigates why and how companies adopt Circular Economy-inspired practices in their supply chains. He is focusing on institutional factors that drive companies’ practices and strategies (such as legislation, norms and peer pressures) as well as on the supply chain mechanisms that might make that adoption easier. Another area of research has to do with Circular Economy indicators for supply chains and how to measure the progress towards the Circular Economy.

Tommaso's research is part of ReTraCE, a project funded by Horizon 2020 EU’s Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks that will support EU Circular Economy Strategy.
