Alberto De Luca was born in Rovigo (Italy) in June 15, 1988. From the University of Padova he received a B.Sc. degree in Biomedical Engineering in 2011, and a M.Sc. degree in Bioengineering in 2013. Both the Bachelor and Master Thesis regarded the analyis of biomedical image, in the first case acquired from confocal microscopy (supervised from Prof. E. Grisan), in the latter from Magnetic Resonance (supervised by Prof. A. Bertoldo).
Since 2014 he is a PhD Student in Bioengineering at the Department of Information Engineering of the University of Padova, in partnership with Scientific Institute IRCCS E. Medea, Bosisio Parini (LC), Italy. His research activities cover different topics of Magnetic Resonance Imaging, as:
- geometrical analysis of the brain from high resolution T1w data, with particular attention to children affected by cortical malformations;
- Diffusion Weighted MRI (DW-MRI), both in terms of quantitative analysis aimed to clinical research and development of novel signal models;
- Muscoskeletal Imaging, including both morphologic acquisitions (T1w, T2w, multi-echo GRE based) and DW-MRI.
