I have a PhD in Physics, and I have worked as a Biomedicine Data Scientist since 2002, gaining a large experience in the analysis and integration of massive screening and clinical data. I have always been very interested in the application of basic science to human health, especially in interdisciplinary teams, analyzing and managing data and projects, quality control assessment, curation and combination of data. I collaborated with different medicine research groups on a large diversity of diseases using robust and complex tools and statistical methodologies, and my contributions may be found in many scientific papers published to date ( Currently, my interests are closely related to the functions I perform at EU-PEARL, that are the development of informatics methods, specifications and tools to interconnect multiple hospital EHR systems, in a federated model. I am actively working on the harmonization of platform trials Inclusion-Exclusion criteria into interoperable queries to be used in clinical real-world data. Methodologies and specifications used at EU-PEARL give us a rapid access to pools of candidate trial patients for potentially further recruitment.
