I work in the Applied Mathematics group of the School of Mathematics. My research interests are in the area of mathematical models for infectious disease dynamics, which include both mathematics and statistics. My current fellowship focuses on developing multi-scale methods to study the epidemiological and evolutionary consequences of co-infection (e.g. when two different pathogens, or variants of the same pathogen, interact within the host).


After a 4-year degree in Mathematics from the Università di Trieste (Italy), I moved to London, for a PhD and postdoc at Imperial College (2005-2012). After another postdoc at the University of Warwick (2012-2017), I was awarded a Sir Henry Dale Fellowship, which I’m now continuing at the University of Manchester.
