Main research activity is devoted to the analysis of the cultural elaboration and social production of illness experience, with regards to migrants and health care.

Such analyses constitute the ground on which action-research activities are realized within the heath care system, trying to combine forms of intervention capable of taking into account both: the role of cultural differences and the impact of socio-economic inequalities.
