He has been working as a biostatistician at the Department of Epidemiology, Lazio Region Health Service, Italy, since April 2003.
He has contributed to the planning and implementation of several environmental epidemiology studies, at the Italian (SISTI, EPIAIR 1 and 2) and European level (HEAPSS, AIRGENE, ESCAPE, MED-PARTICLES), aimed at investigating the relationship between environmental exposures and adverse health outcomes, and the identification of vulnerable population subgroups. In particular, he has been the coordinator of the European multi-centre project “MED-PARTICLES: Particles size and composition in Mediterranean countries: geographical variability and short-term health effects”, funded by the European Commission under the LIFE+ framework (grant: LIFE+2010 ENV/IT/327).
In the last period, he has been involved in several national and international projects aimed at developing spatiotemporal models to predict daily PM concentrations at fine spatial grid over the whole Italy and in the Stockholm county, by use of satellite data.
He is co-author of more than 80 scientific papers published on international and Italian journals and indexed in PubMed.
