Diego Ulisse Pizzagalli

Postdoctoral researcher

My research interests focus on combining biomedical data with computational methods to answer/generate biomedically relevant questions.

Currently, this includes intravital imaging data with graph-based algorithms to unravel novel mechanisms of the immune system (PhD project).

While in the past:
- Electrocardiographic signals (ECG) and machine learning for the automatic detection of arrythmic and ischemic events (MSc thesis).
- Near infrared sensors (NIR) and ubiquitous computing for decreasing the mortality associated with the sudden infant death sindrome (SIDS).
- Low-cost sensors, ubiquitous computing and machine learning for improving the posture of office workers.
- Social networks and real-time data mining for the monitoring of flu outbreaks.

Other projects/activitied:

- Co-coordinating a team of 4 people working on the IMMUNEMAP project which aims to make 2-photon intravital microscopy videos of the immune system Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable. Link will follow soon.
- Teaching Assistant at the faculty of informatics - Universita della Svizzera italiana
- Tutor of the LaM project in collaboation with Liceo Lugano 2

OPEN thesis/internship possibilities. Students interested on the aforementioned topics are invited to contact me or prof. Krause.
