Biography

I hold a MSc and BSc in Economic and Social Sciences from Bocconi University in Milan. I joined HEHTA in 2018.

I am currently focused on evaluations of public health intervention, with a specific interest in alcohol-related policies and epidemiology. I have also experience in health economic evaluations of diagnostics and screening strategies related to a diverse range of disease areas (alcohol misuse, infectious and neglected tropical diseases). I am involved in teaching and assisting some courses of our MSc in Health Technology Assessment (HTA) as well as I regularly supervise Public Health and HTA master students.
