Marco obtained a Laurea (MSc) summa cum laude in Economics from the University of Sassari (Italy) with a thesis on "Recent Theoretical and Applied Developments of the Statistical Analysis of Spatio-Temporal Data". He received his PhD in applied statistics from the University of Florence by defending his doctoral dissertation on "Prediction in Nonparametric and Semiparametric Modelling with Random Effects". He conducted methodological and applied research at the Council of National Research (Italy), at the University of South Carolina (USA), and at the University of Manchester (UK).

Research Summary

Marco's research interests are in statistical methods and applications for health and socioeconomic sciences. In particular, he developed linear quantile mixed models (LQMM), quantile regression models for correlated data. Being an R enthusiast, he authored lqmm, an R package for estimating quantile regression models for independent and hierarchical data. Past research includes nonparametric and semiparametric regression for disease and poverty clustering.

Collaborative work at the Institute of Child Health is currently focused on: developing processing software for large-scale population-based accelerometer data; developing statistical methods to model physical activity profiles in young children; and investigating determinants of physical activity using data of the Millennium Cohort Study. Other present and past collaborations include studies on: childhood, teenage and young adults cancer, apoptosis imaging with positron emission tomography, and Crohn's disease.
