Research activities

My research interest focuses on addressing the unmet needs of people living with movement disorders.

With a Health Research Methodology background, I aim to develop symptomatic and neuroprotective clinical trials for Parkinson’s Disease using innovative designs, including precision-medicine approaches for selection of study population, intervention at early stages, and optimization of outcome assessments.

I am also interested in the evaluation of outcomes and expansion of indications for neuromodulation therapies, such a Deep Brain Stimulation, Spinal Cord Stimulation, and MRgFUS.

I am a member of the Parkinson Study Group, a group dedicated to the design and implementation of clinical trials in Parkinson’s Disease, and a member of the Evidence-Based Medicine Committee of the International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society.
