About me

  • I am associate professor in internal medicine and geriatrician at the University Hospital of Ferrara (Italy).

    I graduated in Medicine and Surgery at the University of Padua (Italy) in 2012, then I specialized in Gerontology and Geriatrics in 2018 and obtained a PhD degree in Clinical and Experimental Sciences at the same university. 

  • As a Geriatrician, I have developed skills in the clinical management of older patients with acute and chronic disorders, both in the hospital and community settings. At the same time, I had the opportunity to improve my skills in the research field by collaborating 

  • in the coordination and conduction of observational or intervention studies, and by conducting projects on aging epidemiology, from the design to the data analysis and interpretation.


  • I work in the field of aging epidemiology. My specific areas of interest are: accidental falls, sarcopenia, and frailty in older age.


  • As an assistant professor at the University of Ferrara (2021-2024) and now associate professor, I am actively involved in the teaching activities for the university courses of Medicine and Surgery (Geriatrics classes), Nursing (Geriatrics and Internal Medicine classes), post-graduate courses (Community Nursing), residency programmes in Geriatrics of the University of Ferrara and Padua (Epidemiology and applied statistics

  • Geriatrics), and the PhD course in Biomedical Sciences and Biotechnology of the University of Ferrara. Moreover, I have contributed as a teacher at the KI course "Aging and Age-Related Disorders: Biological, Epidemiological, and Clinical Perspectives".
