During the last 5 years, my research focused on drug safety and clinical epidemiology. The main subject has been inappropriate drug use in the pharmacological treatment of pain, psychosis, diabetes, heart failure, and atrial fibrillation. I got a wide range of interest in different sub-field of Pharmacology, such as pharmacoepidemiology, pharmacotherapy and pharmacogenetics that gave me the chance of collaborating with more than 100 partners all over the world.
