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 stargazing, cooking with my wife and reading books, especially those on the history and culture of foreign countries. My favourite places in the UK, so far, are: Saint Bees (Cumbria), 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!

Since March 2016, I am a lecturer for the African Institute of Mathematical Sciences in Ghana and Tanzania, where I have been teaching courses on statistical modelling.


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.
