I graduated in Economics from the University of Salerno (Italy) in 2012 and then completed a Masters in Statistics at the University of Bologna (Italy) in 2014.

I joined the Cancer Survival Group in 2015 and I’m working in the CONCORD programme since then.

In October 2017, I also started a PhD aiming to explain global variation in population-based survival from malignant melanoma.

Research

My main research interests are in international comparisons of population-based cancer survival, which are designed to measure the comparative effectiveness of health systems in cancer control, and thus to influence cancer control policy. 

I'm particularly interested in explaining the wide global variation in population-based survival from malignant melanoma in countries partecipating in the CONCORD programme.

I’m also involved in the modelling of life tables for countries participating in the CONCORD study by applying a new multivariable, flexible model developed in the Cancer Survival Group to estimate complete, smoothed life tables for sub-national populations.
