I am a biostatistician with working experience from both the pharmaceutical industry (GSK and AstraZeneca) and the university (CHESS, NASP and MEB). I consider myself a curious and perseverant person with a great interest in applied statistics and I love to collaborate with teams of medical specialist from different areas.
2006 London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine: master in Medical Statistics
2005 University "La Sapienza" Rome, University degree in Statistical Sciences and Economics (5 years faculty degree)
I collaborate and assist on a daily basis medical researchers of different specialisations providing statistical consultancy on various independent epidemiological and biostatistical projects. In particular I work on massive transfusions, asthma, and african verbal autopsy data. My work ranges from study design to cleaning and datamanagement, executing statistical analyses using different statistical methodologies and modelling techniques (mixed models, survival analysis, logistic regression, Poisson regression, lifecourse analysis, epidemiological analysis), mainly with SAS and STATA programming
