Research Summary

I am a researcher at the Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging (WIN), passionate about making research translational and applicable in clinical settings. My current project aims to translate research knowledge and quantitative measurements from brain MRI in memory clinic through the Oxford Brain Health Centre.

I am also involved in projects that aim to develop image analysis tools for clinical applications and to harmonise MRI-derived measures across sites/studies. 
I am a member of the Translational Neuroimaging Group (TNG) and collaborate on studies on brain MRI analysis in ageing, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and vascular disease, looking for early signs of dementia and neurodegeneration.

I co-lead the Dementias Platform UK (DPUK) Work Package 22: Image processing pipelines.

As a member of the WIN Analysis group I am also involved in the development of methodological approaches for structural MRI (automated lesions segmentation) and resting state fMRI (artefact removal and reproducibility assessments) part of the FSL image analysis software package.

I completed my undergraduate studies and a PhD in Bioengineering at Politecnico di Milano (Milan, Italy) before moving to University of Oxford as a postdoctoral researcher and then Alzheimer's Association Research Fellow.

Teaching and Training

I am involved in post-graduate supervision and in teaching, both within the University of Oxford and at the international FSL course.

I am also a College Advisor and Research Member of the Common Room at Kellogg College.
