Personal profile


I am a Biomedical Engineer with strong interests in the areas of medical instrumentation and physiological data processing. I had the fortune to work in Industry and Academia gaining knowledge and insights from both worlds.

My Lab is always looking for talented and motivated candidates for very challenging and rewarding PhD and Postdoc positions.

Research Interests

My research fits in the areas of medical biomedical data processing (imaging, segmentation, modelling), and instrumentation (biosensing and diagnostics). I am investigating the use of segmentation and 3D modelling to improve surgical planning and outcomes. I have interests in proprioceptive stimulation (Whole Body and Focal Vibration) in healthy and pathological subjects with regards to motor functions and balance control (brain 2 body connections). My research allows me to contribute to the design, development and testing of cutting-edge medical devices in collaboration with leading national and international Academic institutions and SMEs.
