I graduated in 2017 in Biomedical Engineering and obtained my PhD in 2020 at the Polytechnic University of Turin with the thesis "Innovative strategies for tissue characterization in multimodal images". I'm currently doing a postdoc at the University of Twente (UT) in the Multi-Modality Medical Imaging group (M3I) on artificial intelligence and image processing techniques applied to breast photoacoustic images. My research interests are mainly in the areas of image processing and image registration.
