About me

I am a pediatric neuroradiologist at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children in London, the biggest pediatric hospital in UK and one of the biggest in the world. It is a center of excellence in diagnosis and treatment of complex pediatric diseases with a large neuroscience department. I am also an consultant neuroradiologist at Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust in London.
I completed a fellowship in pediatric neuroradiology at The Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto, Canada in 2015 and I spent one year at the University Hospital of Leuven, Belgium in 2012, deepening my knowledge in advanced magnetic resonance (MR) techniques.
My main goal is to help the clinicians in management of complex neurological and neurosurgical cases providing high accuracy in the diagnosis of diseases of the brain, spine, head and neck and inner ears. My daily tasks include reporting complex CT and MRI pediatric scans of the brain and spine, including suspected non-accidental injuries, and participating to strategic multidisciplinary meetings in case of suspected child abuse.
My main research interests are: pediatric brain tumors, pediatric epilepsy, inner ear malformations, and pediatric head and neck pathologies.
I am member of European Society of Neuroradiology and editorial board member of "Neuroradiology", the official journal of the European Society of Neuroradiology and “Child Nervous System”, journal of the European Society of Pediatric Neurosurgery. I have co-authored 62 scientific peer-reviewed papers in international radiology journals all in the field of Neuroradiology and I have edited 4 book chapters.
Outside the reporting room I practice martial arts (Kendo: Japanese fencing), I run and read a lot.
