I am a physicist by training (MSc) with a strong focus on Applied Biomechanics. I earned a Master of Research in Medical Imaging and obtained an EPSRC fellowship to carry out his PhD in University College London, collaborating actively with the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children. His scientific career has granted him a diverse background embedding imaging and diagnostic methodologies at microscopical level (nanotechnology) and at macroscopic level (using MRI).
I developed a highly international character, having studied and worked in 5 countries (Italy, France, United Kingdom, Norway and United States), participating in research funded by international grants (EC – European Commission H2020 for the project “Imaging the Force of Cancer, FORCE”, NIH Grant R21 EB030757) and collaborate with numerous institution across the world (University College London, INSERM Paris, King’s College London, University Hospital Heidelberg, University of Oslo, NIH Bethesda, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Stanford University).
I recently received a Horizon Marie Curie Global Fellowship from the European Commission which is funding the project GLIOBID: Guiding glioblastoma treatments by decrypting tumour biomechanics via Magnetic Resonance Elastography (more details here https://cordis.europa.eu/project/id/101068340).
This project will be carried out at Stanford under the supervision of Prof. Heike Daldrup-Link and combined synergistically with Theragnostic cutting-edge technologies.
