I obtained my degree in Medicine and Surgery in 2008 and my specialisation in Public Health in 2014 from the University of Bologna (Italy).

During my specialty training programme my research focussed on neglected tropical diseases among immigrant populations in Italy and on socio-economic inequalities in mortality and access to health care in an Italian census cohort.

I completed a Master in Epidemiology at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine in 2015.
