A Short Description

I was born in Italy, and then I ended up here. My supervisor is Mads Nielsen and my co-supervisors are Martin Lillholm and Marleen de Bruijne. Although I am a DIKU Ph.D. student I spent my working days at a company we collaborate with, Nordic Bioscience, in Herlev. My main topic of research is Osteoporosis risk assessment by automated approach. I am also interested in quantifying the efficiency of specific biomarkers and drugs; Shape analysis of temporal (time series) and cross-sectional study of digital X-rays images.
