Curiculum Vitae

I was born on the 14th November 1986. I graduated in Medicine and Surgery with honors in 2011 at the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart of Rome and specialized with honors in Dermatology and Venereology in 2016 at the Sapienza University of Rome.

Since November 2016, I’ve been working in the “Skin Cancer Unit” of the Dermatology Department of the Arcispedale Santa Maria Nuova in Reggio Emilia.

My principal field of interest is the use of dermoscopy and confocal microscopy in the diagnosis of skin tumors. As a resident I also dealt with psoriasis, in particular regarding the management of biological therapies.

My everyday practice in the “Skin Cancer Unit” consists in managing patients with skin tumors, such as melanoma, basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, Kaposi’s sarcoma and Merkel cell carcinoma.

Furthermore, translational research is an important part of our activity, in this respect my main field of interest is statistics.
