I am a PhD student in Data Science at the Scuola Normale Superiore of Pisa. I have studied physics at University of Pisa and specialized in Medical Physics during my master at University of Pisa. My PHD project deals with deep learning models applied to medical image analysis, in particular mammography and Computed Tomography (CT). During the coronavirus pandemic, I worked on applying my research frame on Computed Tomography (CT) COVID cases in order to quantify lung involvement, trying to create a useful tool for physicians.

I am currently working on imagining, developing and quantifying an ethical and inclusive method to study medical imaging and personal health, through an explainable, scientific and high performing approach. Since health studies involve many research fields, I am collaborating with several Italian hospitals and physicians, computer scientists, physicists and historians.
