I obtained a M.Sc. Degree in Biomedical Engineering at University of Pisa in 2013 (full marks, cum laude). In June 2017 I obtained the Ph.D. in Biorobotics (full marks, cum laude) at the BioRobotics Institute of Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna (SSSA), with a thesis regarding innovative therapeutic applications of ultrasound for targeted therapies.
My scientific activity has been characterized from the beginning by a strongly interdisciplinary and curiosity-driven approach. This allowed me to carry out innovative research efforts at the interface between different disciplines, such as therapeutic ultrasound, ultrasound imaging, materials science, and biotechnologies.
I am currently a Post-Doc researcher in the "Regenerative Technologies Lab" at the BioRobotics Institute of Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna, working on ultrasound technologies for regenerative medicine applications.
My research activity is mainly focused on the development of ultrasound-based systems for therapeutic purposes. In particular my mainly interests are:
- characterization of the ultrasound fields;
- system design for HIFU and LIPUS applications;
- measurement of acoustic properties of materials and tissues;
- investigation of physical effects due to the interaction between ultrasound waves and tissues.
