Matteo is currently employed as a clinical scientist /postdoctoral researcher investigating adaptive Radiotherapy, image acquisition/reconstruction and MR-only Radiotherapy with the aid of deep learning. 

Matteo is born Como (Italy) in May 1989 and studied Physics at the Insubria University graduating (cum laude) in March 2014. In those years he gained interest in experimental Physics, with a predilection for particle detectors. Following this interest, he had the opportunity to perform profilometry measurements of an anti-proton beam and measure the diameter of the Sun with a pixelated silicon detector and develop a detector for spectral measurements of neutrons produced by an in-hospital linear accelerator.
After getting in touch with the hospital environment and feeling the need of broadening his horizons, he decided to step into the field of medical imaging, where, by chance, detectors are somehow involved. Form May 2014 to May 2018 he was enrolled as a PhD candidate at the Radiotherapy Department of the Universitair Medisch Centrum Utrecht (The Netherlands). During his PhD project, he had the luck to discover the beauty of magnetic resonance imaging in the practical realm of radiotherapy.
Nowadays, medical imaging and Radiotherapy are still Matteo's passions.
