Veronica Casarin holds a PhD in Business Studies from Cardiff University (UK) and a Master of Philosophy in Accounting from the London School of Economics and Political Science (UK). Prior to joining ESSEC, Veronica was a post-doctoral researcher at Ca' Foscari University of Venice (Italy), working on a EU funded project on the impact of public policies on firms' competitiveness. Veronica was also visiting researcher at HEC Paris and was part of the organizing committee of the Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Accounting Conference (IPA, Cardiff, 2012).
As part of her doctoral studies, Veronica has investigated the role of management accounting in the construction of innovation networks in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical sector. Veronica's research interests are mainly phenomenon-driven and revolve around the areas of accounting and valuation as social, institutional and organisational practices. Prior to her doctoral studies, she also conducted quantitative research and published in the areas of private equity, family business performances, and knowledge strategy.
Currently, her research focuses on the mutual shaping between budgeting, performance measurement and valuation devices, and innovation in the context of hybrid organizational forms. Veronica is also exploring the use of qualitative and narrative tools for evaluating the impact of EU and regional innovation policies.
