Federica De Stefano is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Wharton People Analytics Initiative at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. Federica De Stefano’s research examines how firms create and capture value from human capital. In studying this topic, she has developed three interrelated streams of research that analyze: 1) the role of managers in shaping individual and organizational outcomes; 2) the consequences of employee mobility for employers and employees; 3) the use of market-oriented approaches to employment relationships. Theoretically, her research seeks to speak to the literatures on human resource management and strategic human capital. Empirically, much of her work is quantitative and based on field studies in organizational contexts. Federica holds a Ph.D. in Business Administration and Management, a M.Sc. in International Management, a BA in Management from Bocconi University in Milan (Italy), and a M.Sc. in Management Science and Corporate Management from Fudan University in Shanghai (China).
