Interessi di ricerca

Non-invasive characterization of human brain structural and functional properties by using magnetic resonance imaging methodologies. See Research Activities.

Attività di ricerca

With a background in physics my interest is in magnetic resonance imaging acquisition and analysis methods. I am interested in optimizing the quantitative information that can be extracted from human brains. Interests include: geometric accuracy, functional specificity, spatial/temporal resolution, reliability, information in temporal signal dynamics, evaluation of brain MRI biomarkers for neurodegenerative diseases (e.g., Alzheimer's disease).

I lead the CIMEC MRI Methods Group, more information about our resarch activities can be found on our group website:
