Institute for Biomedicine
I am a research fellow at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia and visiting scientist at the Institute for Biomedicine, Eurac Research (Italy). My research focuses on participation in biomedical research, participant-centered approaches, and public views on health data use. In the frame of the Cooperative Health Research in South Tyrol (CHRIS) study, I work on communication and research participant engagement.
I hold an MSc in Medical Biotechnology and a PhD in Oncology from the University of Padua, Italy. I conducted research at the University of Padua, Karolinska Institutet, and Uppsala University in molecular and cellular biology of viral infections. I obtained a MA in Anthropology (University of Bologna, Italy) and a MA in African Studies (Dalarna University, Sweden) for my theses on the representation of HIV/AIDS and attitudes towards biomedicine in South African fictional literature.
