Diego Ulisse Pizzagalli

PhD Fellow and Teaching Assistant

I am following an interdisciplinary Systemsx.ch PhD project jointly at the Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB) and at the Institute of Computational Science (ICS) - Universita della Svizzera italiana. In my prevous studies, I obtained a master and a bachelor degree in Computer Engineering - T2D Data Engineering at Politecnico di Milano - Italy.

My research interests focus on combining biomedical data with computational methods.

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.

I also work as Teaching Assistant at the faculty of informatics - Universita della Svizzera italiana

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