Research Scientist – Research Area Chair (Migration and Mobility)

Emanuele Del Fava

Laboratory of Digital and Computational Demography

I am a quantitative researcher with a Ph.D. in statistics, with a highly multidisciplinary research perspective (biostatistics, epidemiology, demography, health economics) and interest in computational methods and data. My expertise is mainly in statistical modeling of infectious diseases data and international migration data.
