Biography
I completed a BSc (106/110, equivalent to a first class degree) in Statistical Sciences in 2005 at the University of Turin (Italy) and a two-years MSc in Experimental Statistics (110 and honours/110, full mark distinction) in 2008 at the University of Milano-Bicocca (Italy).

In September 2008 I joined UCL as Research statistician and, whilst working, I completed a part-time PhD in Epidemiology entitled: “Insights from an individual-level model of HIV programmes in southern Africa: HIV testing, ART [antiretroviral therapy] and resistance” (2009-2014).
In 2015 I became a Lecturer in Infectious Disease Modelling and Biostatistics in the UCL Research Department of Infection and Population Health (now part of the Institute of Global Health).
 

Research Summary
My research focuses on the modelling HIV epidemics, using an individual-based stochastic dynamic model of HIV transmission, progression and the effect of antiretroviral therapy,
to investigate the impact of improvements in HIV testing, earlier ART initiation, use of oral PrEP and introduction of new diagnostics and prevention interventions in high income and low income settings.
I am also involved in the design and analysis of cohort studies in people at risk of HIV infection and of people living with HIV in Europe and in Zimbabwe. 
I collaborate closely with colleagues in my centre at UCL and clinicians, epidemiologists and economists from other universities in the UK and abroad.
Teaching Summary
Undergraduate teaching
I lecture and lead small group work sessions for the Use of Evidence module in the first year of the MBBS degree.
 
Post-graduate teaching
I am the co-lead for the 2-day short course "Introduction to Cost-effectiveness Analysis for Infectious Diseases". I also provide lectures and lead practical sessions for this course.
I give lectures and lead work groups on the 5-day annual short course "Methodological and Statistical Issues in HIV Research", organised by my UCL Research Department.
I teach on the module for the "Epidemiology and Infectious Diseases" Masters-level module and on the module "Core Concepts in Population Health" to MSc students in Population Health.

I am currently a secondary supervisor on 1 PhD project.
