Migration Health Research Area/Expertise:
Research Fellow at the European University Institute (EUI) in Florence, I hold a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Siena. I am an expert in analysis and modeling of quantitative data: my research interests are mainly concentrated on the impact of mobility and migration on European welfare and health systems. I also work on research and data analysis on reception systems and integration of migrants in Europe.
Prior to joining the Global Governance Programme (GGP) at the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies (RSCAS) in 2013, I have also worked with international organizations such as UNHCR, the European Commission, the European Parliament and other research center and NGOs on policy research and analysis in Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Italy, Serbia and Spain. My Ph.D. thesis – “Health systems and inequality: the case of migrants in Europe” – is a study of the health discrimination and inequalities suffered by migrants in Europe, through a quantitative analysis of their health inequality of opportunities and unmet needs. In this context, I was a Visiting Researcher at the Agència de Salut Pùblica de Barcelona (ASPB), collaborating to the 7th Framework Programme (grant 278173) SOPHIE, namely Evaluating the Impact of Structural Policies on Health Inequalities. I am a peer reviewer for the Journal of Immigrant & Refugee Studies and International Journal of Human Rights in Healthcare. I am also an activist for human rights, working especially with migrants, asylum seekers, and vulnerable people.
