Tommaso holds an MSc in Engineering and Management from Politecnico di Torino and a MAS in Industrial Engineering and Operations from SUPSI in Lugano (Switzerland). He has worked as an Industrial Engineer around logistics in the automotive industry, dealing with lean manufacturing and digitalisation programs. His passions for Circular Economy, technological and social innovation brought him to work also for Impact Hub Kuala Lumpur, around fostering entrepreneurship on SDGs. In 2019 he started a PhD at the Sheffield University Management School where he could conjugate his different experiences in a research project.
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 the adoption easier.
Another area of research has to do with Circular Economy indicators for supply chains. Together with the Working Package 1 team he will define an indicators system for measuring the circularity degree of a supply chain, based on its capacity of reducing waste streams, taking into account environmental, economic and social perspectives.
