At that time, he counts on a decades-long experience of scientific collaboration with British researchers, eg. D.Clayton, D.Cox, A.P.Dawid, W.Gilks and D.Spiegelhalter.

2008-2011 Employed at Cambridge Faculty of Mathematical Sciences, he co-organizes (with Bernardinelli and Dawid) the (arguably) first major international conference on Causal Inference. He lead-edits a landmark book on Statistical Causality (Wiley).

Research Management after arrival in UK

He has participated with PI capacity in European Research Projects. In 2007-2013 he was proponent and chair of the Royal Statistical Society Study Group in Bioinformatics, and Member of the Royal Statistical Society Council.

Teaching Besides decades of (mostly italian) undergraduate teaching, he has given courses in Statistics, Bayesian modelling and Causal Inference in top academic venues (Cambridge, Manchester, Pavia, Leiden, Aarhus, etc.), for master and post doctoral students, statistical and medical and computer science researchers, plus invited scientific meeting lectures.

Software development 

He authored publicly available R and Stan software.

Reviewing activity

His most recent (2019-) activity as a peer reviewer for statistical, biological and medical scientific journals is documented in Publons ( He has been a statistical reviewer for research funding bodies as MRC and NIHR. See for further information.
