Sebastiano

A pioneering scholar in the field of Organizational Neuroscience, Sebastiano is the founding co-chair of the Interest Group in Organizational Neuroscience at the Academy of Management, and the Director of the Organizational Neuroscience Laboratory. Sebastiano is a tenured academic at the Surrey Business School and an honorary Associate Professor at the University of Warwick, where he formerly led the University's Global Research Priority in Behavioral Science. 

He is the inaugural Ph.D. graduate of the UCL School of Management. He graduated in Neuroscience at the University of Trieste and International School of Advanced Studies, in Neuroimaging at the University of Edinburgh, and in Biotechnology for Health at the University of Padova.

 

RESEARCH

Sebastiano’s research is regularly published in world-leading journals across scientific fields - such as Nature Biotechnology, The Lancet, Organizational Research Methods, Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, among many others. Sebastiano is a five-times award-winning scholar at the Academy of Management and his work continues to be featured in international media.

His research maps the scholarly boundaries of Organizational Neuroscience and empirically investigates the interplay between affect and cognition in decision-making. Contextually grounded in healthcare, Sebastiano's work uses advanced methodologies to solve practical problems often of diagnostic and clinical relevance.


Over the years, Sebastiano has put together an innovative and creative research laboratory populated by talented researchers with diverse disciplinary and cultural backgrounds. His most recent collaborations focus on applications of machine learning methods to solve diagnostic issues and behavioural interventions to improve wellbeing in public sectors.

CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE (COPD) PHENOTYPES AND MACHINE LEARNING 

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease or COPD is a highly heterogeneous condition projected to become the third leading cause of death worldwide by 2030. To better characterize this condition, Sebastiano and his co-authors systematically reviewed the last decade of research using cluster analysis to identify COPD phenotypes, presenting the strengths and weaknesses of the main methods used and suggesting recommendations for future research.

 
 

TEACHING AND CONSULTING

Sebastiano’s teaches at the post-graduate, executive, and doctoral levels. He currently serves as external examiner for the MBA and EMBA Programmes at the London Business School. He has developed and led both in-person and online courses on advanced quantitative methods, leadership and management, organizational neuroscience, behavioural science for healthcare, and biotechnology entrepreneurship. 

A keen supervisor, he has advised research students at several Universities as well as students working for organizations such as the NHS and Lloyds, among others. His doctoral students have secured placements in top-institutions worldwide.

Sebastiano's consulting work focuses on projects that apply neuroscience and behavioral science to optimize organizational decision-making, particularly in healthcare and knowledge-intensive sectors. Sebastiano speaks internationally, and his engagements offer a personalized, research-informed approach that emphasizes the implementation of effective, long term solutions.
