He has explored the relationship between governance and organisational performane, the role and contribution of human capital to the efficiency and effective of the service provided, and the antecedents and consequences of management structures and characteristics for hospital performance. He is particularly interested in the role of professionals in enanching quality and efficiency of healthcare provision. His preferred methodological approach is quantitative.

His research interests are predominantly in the governance and management of healthcare organisations. Specifically, he has investigated the role and effectiveness of hospitals governing boards, changes in the management structures and functions of healthcare organisations and their effects on the efficiency and effectiveness of healthcare provision, the impact of clinical leadership on hospital performance, and antecedents and implications of human capital for performance outcomes. Current projects include investigating the role of the medical profession in health reforms, antecedents and consequences of medical engagement and the impact of consulting advice usage on organisational performance.

His research has been supported by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), the Northern Leadership Academy (NLA), the Centre for Innovation in Health and Management (CIHM) and the World University Network (WUN). Gianluca has developed a number of postgraduate and executive courses and has held associated programme directorship positions.
