Research interests:

My interest is to understand the main pathogenetic drivers of type 2 diabetes by disentangling the heterogeneity of the disease. Here, I am especially focusing on the bioinformatic exploitation of a large set of phenotypes, such as clinical variables, laboratory values and genetic data to understand causes of beta cell dysfunction. I participate in the design, coordination and realization of multiple clinical studies and work as a consultant endocrinologist in patient care.
