Fighting blindness

Nature Photonics (i.f. = 38) published an article I worked on. The article focuses on an innovative technique for observing the retina at the cellular level, allowing for early detection of eye-diseases (and thus, preventing blindness).

I personally developed the mathematical model for this project, which was also published in Optics Express and in my PhD thesis. This model allowed us to understand what determined the image formation process and how to maximize image quality (reaching the cellular level).

This joint publication was developed by the team working at École Polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland, under the supervision of Prof. Christophe Moser and Prof. Francine Behar-Cohen.

We also issued a worldwide patent based on this technology and, some members of the team also made a startup.

Marie Curie Fellowship

I am honored to announce that I have been awarded with a fellowship from the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions of the European Commission. This fund is extremely competitive, as the success ratio is ~10%.

The project is strictly related to rationality as I will study vaccine hesitancy using mathematical and computational models.

The fellowship will take place at University of Limerick, Ireland (awarded Irish university of 2019), with Dr. Mike Quayle (expert in social psychology) and Prof. James Gleeson (expert in multilayer networks).
