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 my PhD in University College London, collaborating actively with the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children. My scientific career has granted me 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 and collaborate with numerous institution across the world.

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
This project will be carried out at Stanford under the supervision of Prof. Heike Daldrup-Link and combined synergistically with Theragnostic cutting-edge technologies.
