I graduated in Economics from the University of Salerno (Italy) in 2012 and then completed a Masters in Statistics in 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 which aims to conduct the first cancer survival study in the Palestinian population, for both the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.

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 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.
