Om mig

I am an Italian medical doctor currently pursuing doctoral education at Karolinska Institutet. My main supervisor is Professor Cecilia Söderberg-Naucler and my co-supervisor are Professor Jiri Bartek, Associate Professor Afsar Rahbar and Dr Giuseppe Stragliotto.

My main research and clinical interests include neurosurgery, neuro-oncology and virology.

I enjoy playing beach volleyball and tennis in my free time.



My research focuses on the definition on the role of Cytomegalovirus in human malignancies and specifically in brain tumors. 

I am particularly interesting in the validation of antiviral therapy in patients with Glioblastoma and in the understanding of the role of this virus as cancer promoting agent.
