Research Summary

I am a Senior Research Fellow with a background in neuroimaging and neuroanatomy in dementia, and specifically in manual segmentation of different brain regions on magnetic resonance images, such as the hippocampus, hypothalamus, habenula, and the striatum.

I am particularly interested in the volumetric analysis of the subcortical structures and the cerebellum, and their functional and structural connections with the cortex.

My main research activity is in the context of the neuroimaging in frontotemporal dementia (FTD) within the Genetic Frontotemporal Dementia Initiative (GENFI).

Before joining the Dementia Research Centre, I collaborated as a Research Assistant with the IRCCS Istituto Centro San Giovanni di Dio Fatebenefratelli (Brescia, Italy), under the supervision of Prof. Giovanni B. Frisoni. In Italy I worked within the project on the harmonization protocol for manual segmentation of the hippocampus. My PhD in Neuroscience (awarded in 2016) was focused on the importance of the standardization of imaging biomarkers for their use in clinical settings and trials.
