He has expertise in the field of research synthesis, including umbrella reviews and network meta-analysis on the long-term efficacy and tolerability of antipsychotics in people with schizophrenia. He has also been involved in activities of guideline development following the GRADE methodology coordinated by national and international institutions (including WHO, UNHCR, and the Italian National Institute of Health – Istituto Superiore di Sanità).
