I began my studies at the University of Sheffield in October 2019. My study aims to use computer algorithms to develop tailored messages and information to patients. I test the effectiveness of such machine based behavioural nudges, and their possible integration in the overall treatment plan. Hereby I focus on patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), and physical activity promotion.  Previously, I obtained MSc in health economics and management at University of Bologna, and BSc in computer application at Nanjing University of Post and Telecom.  Besides, I worked as clinical support specialist and account manager in GE healthcare and Canon Medical to provide medical solutions in diagnosis image field.
