Matteo Tonietto was born on August 4, 1987 in Castelfranco Veneto, Italy. Currently, he is a PhD student in Bioengineering at the Department of Information Engineering, University of Padova, Italy, under the supervision of Prof. Alessandra Bertoldo with a scholarship founded by the Department of Neurological and Movement Sciences, University of Verona. His main research interests consist in developing analysis methods of neuroimages for basic and clinical neurosciences. His current research activities include:
- PET: Development of advanced models of tracer kinetic in plasma, including plasma/blood partition and radiometabolites correction.
- PET: Exploration of quantification methods which do not requires the direct measurement of the input function.
- PET: Implementation of Variational Bayesian estimators for PET parametric mapping.
- MRI: Derivation of brain atrophy measurements (e.g. cortical thickness), and brain microstructure assessment (e.g. NODDI).
- MRI: fMRI functional analysis (e.g. effective/dynamic connectivity).
