Research Interests

Dr. Piccorelli grew up in Cleveland, Ohio and attended Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles for a bachelor’s degree in Political Science.  At this time, and while working full-time in a corporate office, he began reading philosophy, which has helped to shape his research. 

He went on to work for the Mayor of San Francisco and eventually returned to Cleveland to work for Battelle Memorial Institute, a think-tank, where he helped to author technology based economic development plans.  The career helped him to discover the graduate program in public administration at Cleveland State University.  He then worked for a regional bank forecasting losses and managing a sub-prime mortgage portfolio.  After working many long nights and weekends he took another position with the bank where he advised corporate market managers on who might be their best clients in the global marketplace. 

As a Ph.D. student at Cleveland State University’s Maxine Goodman Levin College of Urban Affairs he taught his first course.  He continued teaching here as a Lecturer for several years.  After earning his Ph.D. he served as an Assistant Professor of Public Administration at Governors State University in Illinois. 

He has published articles in Administration & Society and Administrative Theory & Praxis.  His research examines the use of discretion and aesthetic judgment in public administration, the impact of technology on how we think, and what it means to know in the world.  He is also intrigued with how experiences might help us to understand the world, and what they mean for public administration.  He is a research fellow with the Institute of Applied Phenomenology in Science and Technology.
