Clinical Research Fellow
Ludovica completed her degree and PhD in biomedical engineering at Politecnico di Milano. She is now a postdoctoral researcher in the OPDC and in Clare Mackay’s team at the Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging (WIN).
Her current research focuses on brain MRI analysis in ageing, dementia and neurodegeneration. She aims to identify imaging biomarkers especially for the pre-symptomatic phase of the disease and to make research applicable in clinical settings.
In OPDC she is involved in the collection, organisation and analysis of MRI data for people with Parkinson's and individuals at increased risk of developing Parkinson's later in life. Using novel multi-modal imaging techniques she investigates whether measures of brain integrity can be used as biomarkers for Parkinson's.
