Research interests:

My scientific activity focuses on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), including both its technological devlopement and its applications to the fields of clinical research and neuroscience.

Since 2011 I am working at Imago7, the first research center in Italy equipped with a 7 Tesla whole-body MR system; in particular, I am focusing on data acquisition and post-processing techniques for MRI systems operating at ultra-high static field, for applications to neurodegenerative diseases and pediatric neuroimaging. Before joining the Italian team, I worked at the Laboratory for Cognitive Brain Mapping RIKEN atthe Brain Science Institute, Japan, where my research focused mainly on how the brain processes visual motion.
