I obtained my Master's Degree in "Medical Sciences" from the Sant'Anna School of Advanced Studies, and afterward, I became a Cardiology specialist at Pisa University Hospital. I undertook specific training in cardiovascular imaging, achieving multiple international certifications. I completed my Ph.D. degree in "Clinical and Translational Science" at Pisa University, where I applied several imaging techniques in the field of heart failure. My main interest and contribution to the literature lie in cardiovascular physiology and pathophysiology, combining research with intensive clinical activity. In particular, I am focusing on novel measures of cardiovascular damage to refine the stratification of patients who present different cardiovascular risk factors.
