Biography

I am a graduated student in Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Technology and I obtained my degree in Alma Mater Studiorum, University of Bologna. During the last year I had the pleasure to do an internship at the Department of Imaging Sciences under Professor Antony Gee: the project focused on the development of new specific radiotracers for Alzheimer's disease. This research led me to my current interest in radiochemistry and imaging of brain diseases.

This is the reason why I feel that the CDT program in Medical Imaging will make me achieve great goals, both under and academical and a personal point of view. In fact, the multidisciplinarity of the project will allow me to improve as a researcher whilst focusing on the subjects that mostly intrigues me.
