Hi, I'm Silvia. I'm a researcher in public health with a background in public affairs and policy.

I'm passionate about healthcare, politics and pizza.

I worked for CERGAS at Bocconi University on health policies related to biotechnologies, comparative healthcare systems and healthcare research practices. I love to watch political debates and speeches, and sometimes I fact-check them on pagellapolitica.it, Italy's leading fact-checking website. I also run a weekly newsletter @HealthCoverIT, covering major health-related news in Italy each week (in Italian: subscribe here!).

I'm Italian, but I recently moved to Florida because I love flamingos. Oh, and also to get a PhD in Community and Family Health at the University of South Florida.
