  • PhD, University of California, Davis. Civil and Environmental Engineering, water and health, 2010.
  • BS and MS, Environmental Engineering, Universita` degli Studi di Bologna, Italy, 2003.

Research interests

My research interests are in the area of water and health. I work at the intersection of environmental engineering, public health, ecology and sustainable development to help solve water-related human and ecosystem health problems through an "ecohealth" approach. My current areas of activity include:

  • Waterborne disease epidemiology: occurrence and health effects of viruses in drinking water
  • Risk modeling
  • Analytical methods for molecular epidemiology and the study of microbial communities in environmental matrices
  • Human and zoonotic pathogens in agricultural systems
  • Appropriate drinking water and sanitation technologies for low-tech contexts
  • Dissemination of technological innovations
