I am a Research Leader at ISI Foundation, in the Computational Epidemiology and Public Health group. 

My research revolves around the field of infectious diseases epidemiology with a special focus on digital epidemiology, participatory surveillance and mathematical modeling. This field is a high interdisciplinary domain which combines complex system science, computational sciences, complex networks theory, mathematical epidemiology, ICT technologies.

In particular I am interested in complex techno-social systems and in studying new data-collection schemes aimed at detecting disease-related information directly from the general population, both with passive and active approaches.
