Epidemiology of aging and biostatistics group


Research summary

My activity focuses mostly on the study of cognitive and affective domain in the field of geriatric epidemiology. In particular:

  • Drafting and implementation of research projects to assess the effectiveness and impact of non-pharmacological strategies in subjects with dementia or mild cognitive impairment.
  • Operative coordination of epidemiological studies on chronic diseases associated with aging, such as, for example, dementia, diabetes and osteoarthritis.
