I was born in Mantova, on Aug 24th, 1981. I studied Bioengineering and Physics at Politecnico di Milano and Massachusetts Institute of Technology. I have been working with fNIRS and Medical Imaging since 2003, developing instrumentation, physical models and performing clinical trials. I joined ACN Labs at CIMeC (University of Trento) in Rovereto (TN, Italy) in March, 2015.
