I am graduated in Statistics and Information Management and hold a PhD in Environmental Engineering. I am working as researcher on environmental epidemiology. My main research interests are focused on using spatial statistics and environmental modelling applied to public health data for disease mapping and linking environmental exposures to health events. I have published 19 articles in peer-reviewed journals (Scopus h-index : 9, with 206 citations) and contributed in 3 section(s) of books.
