Biography

I obtained a Master’s degree in Bioengineering after having studied at the University of Trieste and, afterwards, at the University of Padua (Italy). I have carried out my Master's project at Columbia University in New York (USA), where I have worked on PET imaging and medical data analysis. After the graduation I have been employed as a research engineer at Vision RT, a medical imaging company that develops leading technology in surface guided radiation therapy.

Throughout these experiences I strengthen my interest in cancer imaging and PET/MR technology; making the most of the information available with the multi-modality technique will allow the enhancement of the diagnostic procedure. Being part of this interdisciplinary CDT gives me a great opportunity to work towards the clinical implementation of my future research findings.
