I received my PhD in Bioengineering (Cum Laude) at Politecnico di Milano (Milan, Italy) in 2016, after my MSc (2013) and BSc (2011) in Biomedical Engineering at Politecnico di Milano.
During my PhD, mentored by Prof. Giuseppe Baselli and Dr Francesca Baglio and working full-time at the IRCCS Fondazione Don Gnocchi in Milan (MRI Lab), I implemented and applied advanced imaging techniques towards the study of healthy and pathological brain function in the context of neurodegenerative diseases. During my PhD, I also spent a visiting research period at the CISC, Brighton and Sussex Medical School (Brighton, UK), under the supervision of Prof. Mara Cercignani.
In 2016, I joined the Department of Neuroimaging at the IoPPN, King’s College London, as a post-doctoral research associate. Currently, I am part of the Neuropharmacology group led by Prof. Mitul Mehta. I also work in close collaboration with the Molecular Neuroimaging group led by Prof. Federico Turkheimer.
I am also a Review Editor in Frontiers in Neurology - Applied Neuroimaging.
