Education


About me

I am an MRC Biostatistics Fellow in the CHICAS research group at the Lancaster Medical School. I work at the interface between development of statistical methodology and epidemiological applications. I formerly did my BSc and MSc in Statistics at the University of Padua, and then joined CHICAS in 2012 where I gained my Ph.D. in Statistics and Epidemiology.

I enjoy hiking, photography, reading books (especially those on contemporary history and philosophy of science) and many other things! My favourite places in the UK are: Saint Bees, Haweswater, Liverpool (where I got married on 21 December 2015) and the Jurassic Coast in Dorset. I am a citizen of the world but Lancaster is my home!

Research

My reaserach interests lie in the development of novel geostatistical methods for disease risk mapping with a particular focus on tropical diseases in Africa. Here is a list of topics on which I have been recently working.
