  • Lecturer in Statistics
  • Epidemiology & Public Health
  • Institute of Epidemiology & Health
  • Faculty of Pop Health Sciences

I obtained a first class honours 4-year BSc in Statistics in 2003 from the University La Sapienza of Rome. In 2006 I completed an MSc in Research Methods and Statistics (City University London) for which I was awarded a distinction. In the same year I started a PhD (part-time) research project "Gender differences in quality of life and depression among older people living with coronary heart disease" under the supervision of Professor Amanda Sacker. The thesis involved secondary analysis of the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing and addressed methodological issues such as missing data in longitudinal studies and self-report bias.

Research Themes
Research Summary

My main area of research concerns statistical methods for the analysis of longitudinal data, in particular structural equation models, multilevel models, survival models and methods for dealing with missing data. Since 2006 I have been working with the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing (http://www.ifs.org.uk/ELSA) and my research focuses on trajectories of physical health and well-being. I also use data from the Health and Retirement Study in US, the Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe, the Korean Longitudinal Study of Aging and the China Health and Retirement Longitudinal Study, for cross-national comparisons.


Teaching Summary

I teach basic statistics and regression modelling (module leader) for the MSc Social Epidemiology: Society and Health (www.ucl.ac.uk/healthandsociety). I also teach on several courses designed for PhD students across UCL, and Longitudinal Data Analysis for PhD students and staff. I supervise the projects of MSc and PhD students.
