I am a PhD candidate at the Department of Economics and Business at the University of Catania. I am integrating this role with my work as lead research team member for latent class analysis methodological innovations for the European Research Council project Participation and Representation in the Digital Age.

Currently, I am a visiting PhD researcher at the Methodology Department at the London School of Economics. I conducted a previous PhD research visit at the Methodology and Statistics department at Leiden University.

My research agenda focuses on latent class modeling, with specific topics in multilevel models, step-wise estimation approaches, and statistical software development.

I am co-developer of the R package multilevLCA.
